1.4 tons of narcotics seized in SE Iran
Zahedan, About 1,423 kilograms of narcotic drugs were found in the southern areas of Sistan and Baluchetan, said commander of border police of Iran in southeastern province.
'The police confiscated the haul of drugs and a vehicle in Saravan,' said Saeed Komeili.
Iran is chosen as a shortcut to the world market by drug dealers, so the country has to spend a lot of time, energy and money in dealing with the drug dealers, entering Iran from the eastern borders.
Not many days pass in Iran, without a new finding in the area. Many Iranian soldiers have been killed in the age-old fight against drug-trafficking.
