9:34 am on 24 September 2015

Three men in south-western China are being prosecuted for selling 35 kilograms of meat from a panda they killed.

Two brothers and another man were also said to have sold the animal's paws and eaten some of the meat themselves.

The police discovery of the panda's skin and 10 kilograms of meat in a raid last December caused revulsion on Chinese social media.
