Nearly 7kg of suspected rhinoceros horns were found in the luggage of three women arriving here from Bangkok last Saturday.
Arrested were Vuong Minh Thu, Duong Thi Thuy Hien and Bui Thi Xien. Customs officials at Noi Bai International Airport inspected their luggage and confiscated six animal horns for further testing.
This is the second animal horn smuggling case uncovered at Noi Bai International Airport this week and the seventh so far this year.
Last October 27, about 6kg of rhinoceros horns were found in the luggage of a passenger arriving here from Bangkok.
