5 tonnes of contraband ivory has been torched in a ceremony in Kenya.

It was seized in Singapore nearly 10 years ago and traced back to Africa by DNA tests.

Its destruction follows an agreement in May by Malawi, Tanzania and Kenya to fight poaching.

Some 335 tusks and more than 40,000 ivory carvings, together worth 16 million dollars, went up in smoke.
