A 68 year old Chinese woman is the world's top Elephant murderer

"A 66-year-old bespectacled Chinese woman may not be most people's idea of an ivory smuggling kingpin, but that's exactly what Tanzanian investigators say Yang Fenglan is.

She is accused of leading one of Africa's biggest ivory smuggling rings, responsible for more than 700 elephant tusks worth $2.5m (£1.7m) illegally leaving Tanzania for the Far East.

Ms Yang denies all charges and her trial is set to begin in Dar es Salaam on Monday."
