Misrata, 21 July 2016:
Security forces in Misrata have seized some 380 kilos of hashish discovered at a checkpoint south-west of Misrata.
The drugs were found yesterday in a truck driven by a Libyan man allegedly from Zliten, who was accompanied by his 10-year old son. They were stopped on the Misrata-Bani Walid road at the Bir Dufan checkpoint at the junction with the road heading towards Zliten. It is reported that the drugs had been driven from Darj, near the border town of Ghadames.
It has not been said where the hashish, thought to originate from Morocco, was heading. While there is a significant local drugs market in Libya, the country is also a major route for smuggling drugs from all over the world to Europe and the Middle East.
On the streets in Europe, the haul would be worth at much as €3.8 million.
The hashsh has been handed over to the anti-drugs administration in Misrata to destroy.
