The Zambian authorities have arrested three Chinese nationals for the alleged illegal possession of 25 rhino horns.

They were arrested along with two Zambians.

Ministry of Tourism and Arts spokesperson Sakabilo Kalembwe said investigations are also under way about another Chinese national who was allegedly caught with 11 rhino horns at South Africa's Oliver Tambo International airport after transiting through Zambia.

“We are getting concerned when we have foreign nationals who are coming here as investors, yet engaging in illegal activities,” he said.

Poaching in Zambia is rampant with China being one of the major destinations for ivory and rhino horns.
