Polokwane - Three men arrested for rhino poaching were denied bail in the Vaalwater Periodical Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, Limpopo police said.

The men, aged between 29 and 42, would appear again on June 25, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

They were arrested on Friday during a joint operation between crime intelligence and Vaalwater detectives.

“A Toyota Tazz, a 416 rifle with a silencer, an axe, and a saw were seized from the suspects,” said Mulaudzi.
