Handout picture dated October 27th 2001 from Greenpeace. NO RESALE - NO ARCHIVE. Thousands of illegal mahogany logs on prohibited Kayapo Indian land, Carajari River, Middle Land, Brazilian Amazon exposed by Greenpeace and Brazilian government officials. Siesures by government officials follow several recent Greenpeace exposes of the mahogany corruption trail, which preceded a death threat to Greenpeace Amazon campaign co-ordinator, Paulo Adario, and an announcement a week ago by the Brazilian government suspending all logging, transport and trade of Brazilian mahogany until it completes an investigation into the industry.
