Russians Seize Heroin at Afghan-Tajik Bporder - 2002-06-30


Russian authorities have seized about 40 kilograms of heroin at the border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan.

Officials said Russian border guards confiscated the drugs late Saturday after three smugglers abandoned their load when they fled back into Afghanistan to avoid capture. The suspects were trying to sneak the drugs across the Pyandzh River into Tajikistan when the border guards moved to arrest them.

Tajik and Russian authorities have seized at least 13-hundred kilograms of drugs from Afghanistan -- mostly heroin -- at the border so far this year.
