Tortoises seized at airport
 
 
 
BANGKOK (AFP) - Thai authorities have found nearly 400 protected tortoises in unclaimed bags at an airport in Bangkok, an official confirmed on Saturday. The Indian and Burmese Star tortoises had been in luggage for about 10 days by the time they were found late Friday at Suvarnabhumi airport, said a senior customs official, who declined to be named. Loading tags suggested they had originally come from Dhaka in Bangladesh, according to the Freeland Foundation, a counter-trafficking organisation, before going to Japan via Bangkok and returning to the Thai capital when they were not collected.
