Rhino poachers killed in Kruger

Two suspected Rhino poachers were shot dead on Monday after they opened fire on rangers in South Africa's Kruger National Park, a park spokesman said.

The rangers were on patrol when they came across a trio of armed men who started shooting.
However, two of the men were killed while a third escaped.They had equipment on them that is integral to rhino poaching, including an axe which would be used for cutting off the horns.

The clash took place in the far south of the vast park, which is the size of Israel.

I'd have said they were more than 'suspected poachers'. I doubt they were on a photographic safari.
