"This recall will affect approximately 3.5 million Nissan vehicles and approximately 381,000 Infiniti vehicles globally," the company said in a statement Friday, adding that more than 80 percent of them were sold in North America.

Eleven giant pyres of tusks, and another of rhino horns, are arranged in a semi-circle now expected to burn for days in Nairobi's national park.
