In this undated photo provided by the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit, Cecil the lion rests in Hwange National Park, in Hwange, Zimbabwe. Two Zimbabweans arrested for illegally hunting a lion appeared in court Wednesday, July 29, 2015. The head of Zimbabwe’s safari association said the killing was unethical and that it couldn’t even be classified as a hunt, since the lion killed by an American dentist was lured into the kill zone. (Andy Loveridge/Wildlife Conservation Research Unit via AP)JOHANNESBURG (AP) — It is, for some well-heeled foreign visitors, the ultimate African experience: the thrill of hunting a lion, one of the so-called "Big Five" animals whose habitats are under increasing pressure from human encroachment. Now an American dentist's killing of a celebrity lion in Zimbabwe has triggered global revulsion, highlighting what critics say is an industry of trophy hunting that threatens vulnerable species across sub-Saharan Africa.

A newly-released inmate is reunited with family members after walking out of Myanmar's Insein prison following a prisoner release in Yangon on July 30, 2015Myanmar on Thursday freed 155 Chinese nationals, who were last week given long jail terms for illegal logging, as a "goodwill" gesture, authorities said, following intense lobbying from China. The announcement comes after the sentences sharply raised tensions between the once closely-bonded neighbours whose ties have cooled since Myanmar began emerging from decades of military rule in 2011. The release included all of the 155 Chinese nationals handed jail sentences for illegal logging in northern Myanmar near their shared border, Beijing’s foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement.
