African countries set for new fight over ivory sales

Three months from a major international conference on endangered species, African countries are divided over whether a fresh round of ivory sales should be allowed.

Tanzania and Zambia, for example, have asked the CITES (Convention on International Trade in International Species) conference to be held from March 13 to 25 in Doha to authorise them to sell 90 and 22 tonnes of ivory respectively.

Whether they are shot on the ground by poachers or killed from the air by government agents the elephants cannot tell the difference.
