A man has been extradited to the US to face charges related to the alleged sale and transport of horns of endangered wild black rhinoceroses.

Gardaí say the man was surrendered to the United States Marshall Service at Dublin Airport this morning, on foot of an extradition warrant endorsed by the High Court.

The man is wanted in the US over allegations of illegal wildlife trafficking.

He is now due to appear in court in Texas.

In a statement, Detective Superintendent Michael J Mullen said the extradition "highlights our continued commitment to combating cross jurisdictional crime and in working closely with our international counterparts”.
