100 Kg Opium Seized in China

Beijing, Nov 7 (Prensa Latina) Chinese police seized 103 kilograms of
opium and methamphetamine in the southern province of Yunnan and
arrested three alleged drug traffickers, official sources reported
Wednesday.

According to the report, this operation is part of a campaign against
drug traffic carried out in the country for several months.

In late October traffic police arrested three people driving
motorcycles in the western town of Shidian, and discovered bags of
opium and ice, as methamphetamines are known.

According to preliminary investigations, hallucinogenic substances
come from Myanmar, but it has not yet been possible to specify how
and where drug traffickers crossed the border.

Since 1982 more than 70,000 cases of border drug trafficking and more
than 80 tons of seized heroin and opium coming from the "gold
triangle" - between Myanmar, Thailand and Laos, have been discovered
in Yunnan Province alone.
