A secret network of wildlife traffickers selling baby chimpanzees has been exposed by a year-long BBC News investigation. The animals are seized from the wild and sold as pets.

A raid on premises in Abidjan, Ivory Coast's largest city, led to the rescue of a young chimp who is now in the care of the authorities.
