A major international ivory trafficker thought to have dealt in the tusks of thousands of elephants over several decades has been arrested in Togo.

Shopkeeper Emile N’bouke was detained during a raid in Lome. It followed an undercover investigation by wildlife campaigners.

More than 700 kilos of ivory were seized, most of which had been carved into sculptures and figurines.
