Turkish Police Seize Drugs Worth $3m at Istanbul Airport


Turkish customs enforcement teams on Thursday seized 420 kilogrammes of drugs valued at $3 million at Turkey’s Istanbul Airport.

During a series of operations, the units seized a Khat-type drug in six bags that belonged to two travellers.
These bags were detected inside a vehicle at the parking zone of the airport.

The police also found a remarkable amount of Khat inside a package declared as a textile item coming from Nigeria to be sent to the United States via Istanbul.

At a separate operation, the police caught six kilograms of cocaine inside a suitcase of a passenger, who was checked by an x-ray device and narcotic detector dog.

A total of nine suspects have been detained in operations.
