Record 1.1 tonnes of cocaine seized in Australia

A major cocaine ring has been dismantled in joint operations with Tahiti, Australian police said yesterday, with a record 1.1 tonnes of cocaine worth of millions of dollars seized off the coasts of Tahiti and bound for Australia. "The entire group has been taken out," said New South Wales Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Jenkins. "It's quite a chunk out of the cocaine economy." - AFP
