1 Killed as Bandits Raid Livestock in Drought-plagued Kenya

Kenyan police say an official has been killed by livestock bandits in the volatile Rift Valley county of Baringo, where a drought has increased cattle rustling.

A police report says about 30 bandits on Friday killed the government-appointed administration chief in the western region when they raided Chepkew village and stole an unknown number of goats. Police say the chief and police reservists were ambushed as they tried to pursue the bandits.

The gunshots were heard as Kenya's Deputy President William Ruto rose to address a crowd nearby during a campaign rally. The gathering ended quickly, according to the TV station Citizen TV.

Livestock thefts by nomadic tribes in the semiarid region are common. The Kenyan government has declared the current drought a national disaster. https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2017-02-24/1-killed-as-bandits-raid-livestock-in-drought-plagued-kenya

Ruto issues shoot-to-kill orders to tackle cattle rustling in Baringo

Deputy President William Ruto on Friday issued a shoot-to-kill order moments after his rally in the volatile Baringo county was temporarily disrupted by bandits who had raided a nearby village and stolen cattle.

The Deputy President who said the government had tolerated cattle rustling long enough ordered police officers to shoot anyone stealing livestock, whether in possession of a firearm or not and also anyone found with illegal firearm.

“We will no longer lose more people because of some few elements who do not want to reform,”said the DP.

And in an ironic turn of events, residents attending the rally at Sibilo in Baringo North, were forced to scamper for safety as heavy gun fire rent the air at Bartabwa, about five kilometres from where Ruto was holding a rally.

The rally, however, continued after gunshots stopped but shortly after, Ng’orora location chief Thomas Chebor was gunned down by bandits while on his way to Chekokel area to recover the stolen livestock.

Chekokel is five few kilometres from Sibilo where Ruto addressed another rally and gave the shoot-to-kill order.... http://www.mediamaxnetwork.co.ke/news/303023/ruto-issues-shoot-kill-orders-tackle-cattle-rustling-baringo/

Vietnamese poachers plunder South Pacific sea cucumbers

Regional nations to meet to discuss crackdown on so-called blue boats

Fleets of small and cheap wooden boats from Vietnam are being accused of plundering marine reef resources in Australia and the South Pacific, prompting countries in the region to discuss anti-poaching measures.

"Blue boats," named for the color of their hulls, take lucrative beche-de-mer (sea cucumbers), giant clams and shark fins in waters controlled by Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia and New Caledonia.

The Forum Fisheries Agency, which represents 17 Pacific nations, plans a meeting in April or May to review allegations that national sovereignty is being undermined by blue boats fishing within territorial waters.

Sea cucumbers, under threat in much of Asia, can fetch around $230 per dried kilogram in Hong Kong and mainland China -- a price that offers hefty returns for fishing fleets using rudimentary boats that cost around $12,000 each.

Steven Purcell, a senior research fellow in fisheries ecology at Australia's Southern Cross University, said that valuable marine species in waters off northern Australia are at increasing risk from poachers because they sell for high prices, are easy to catch and weakly protected.

Purcell said sea cucumbers, one of the "lootable resources" most at risk, play a crucial role in the health of coral reef systems.... http://asia.nikkei.com/Politics-Economy/International-Relations/Vietnamese-poachers-plunder-South-Pacific-sea-cucumbers
