Activists from Greenpeace France uncover a shipment of illegal timber from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in the French port of Caen. They paint the message "Bois Illégal" on the logs and also seize a log as evidence. This timber is sold by Sicobois in DRC and is illegally imported by French group Peltier Bois. Greenpeace is calling on the French Ministry of Agriculture to take appropriate legal action and seize the illegal timber. 2014-01-08
