AFP News Agency: Dozens of baby giant tortoises are being looked after at Galapagos National Park after an attempt to traffic them out of the islands. An Ecuadorian policeman was arrested after airport officials discovered 185 of the creatures stuffed in a suitcase. The reptiles, no more than three months old, were found in luggage destined for Guayaquil in mainland Ecuador during a routine inspection on Baltra island Sunday, authorities said.
