  • Le siège d'Interpol à Lyon

De très nombreuses espèces ont été saisies et près de 600 arrestations ont eu lieu, au cours d'un vaste coup de filet dans le milieu du trafic d'animaux sauvages.

23 primates, 30 fauves, plus de 4 300 oiseaux, près de 10 000 animaux marins dont du corail, des hippocampes, des dauphins et requins, près de 10 000 tortues et quelque 1 500 autres reptiles ont été retrouvés par une opération coordonnée au mois de juin par Interpol et l'Organisation mondiale des douanes (WCO) dans 109 pays. L'opération Thunderball a également permis de mettre la main sur plus de 400 défenses d'éléphants, plus d'une demi-tonne d'objets en ivoire et 2 600 plantes.

Pour réussir ces saisies, l'équipe internationale d'enquêteurs et agents de douane, réunie dans les locaux d'Interpol à Singapour, a remonté plusieurs filières de commerce illégal en ligne.

India suffers ‘meltdown’ as New Zealand reaches final
If there was a playoff instead of the semi-finals then India - the top-ranked team- would have had another bite at the cherry. That brought Dhoni and Jadeja together and they almost saw India home in an improbably nerve-racking finish in Manchester.

Les photos mises en ligne par Interpol montrent des dizaines de perroquets entassés les uns contre les autres dans une petite cage grillagée en Inde, ou des poissons zèbre morts pendant leur transport illégal au Brésil.

Interpol n'exclut pas que d'autres arrestations interviennent dans les semaines, voire les mois à venir.

Une vaste opération, menée par Interpol à l'échelle mondiale, a permis la saisie de milliers d'espèces animales dans le cadre d'une enquête sur le trafic d'animaux sauvages.
