Drugs Seized in Yazd

Iranian police seized 1.7 tons of illicit drugs in the central province of Yazd, said Iraj Kakavand, provincial police chief on Monday.  
“Police discovered and seized 1,723 kilograms of traditional illegal drugs (opium and hashish) in two vehicles entering the province. Eight drug smugglers were also arrested in the two operations,” ISNA quoted him as saying.
Officials say the battle against drug addiction and trafficking costs Iran $1 billion annually. Iran lies on the transit corridor between the world’s biggest opium producer Afghanistan and drug dealers in Europe.
