MOROCCAN POLICE SEIZE 2 TONNES OF HASH


The official Morocco news agency says police have seized more than two tons of hashish along with gear used by traffickers to bring the drugs to Europe.

The MAP agency says 60 police officers with sniffer dogs raided a douar, or settlement, in the remote Fahs Anjra area of northern Morocco, where most of the country’s cannabis grows.

It says police arrested two suspects and seized 2.33 metric tons (2.57 tons) of drugs in bundles ready for shipment across the Mediterranean. Authorities also seized a high-tech speedboat, a sport utility vehicle, a dozen motorboats, and wireless radios along with GPS devices.

Morocco is the world’s No. 2 cannabis producer. Authorities have vowed to crack down on the drug.
