WINDHOEK, May 12 (Xinhua) -- Two Angolan nationals had been arrested in Namibia after they were found in possession of six elephant tusks and 112 porcupine quills, the environment ministry said on Tuesday.

Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism spokesperson Romeo Muyunda said in a statement that the suspects are charged with contravening sections of the Controlled Wildlife Products and Trade Act 9 of 2008, as amended.

The two suspects were remanded in custody following their appearance at the Rundu Magistrates' Court last week.

Namibia has lost 11 rhinos and one elephant to poaching since the beginning of the year, according to the latest figures provided by the ministry. Enditem
