Chinese baby eel smugglers sentenced in France

A French court on Wednesday sentenced two Chinese nationals who tried to smuggle 60 kilos (132 pounds) of live baby eels in their luggage onto a flight to China. Young European eels -- called "glass eels" because of their transparent bodies -- can fetch around 5,000 euros ($5,600) a kilo in China and a local prosecutor said the case was part of a "new form of trafficking that is exploding".
