Several tonnes of illegal “bushmeat” from animals ranging from primates to crocodiles are being smuggled in luggage each week through one of Europe’s busiest airports, researchers said today.

Animal experts worked with customs officials at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport to identify meat from species being carried into Europe from central and west Africa.
