Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A joint op­er­a­tion by Greek and Ger­man po­lice was un­der way yes­ter­day across the coun­try to un­ravel a ring that im­ported drugs from Al­ba­nia and dis­trib­uted them to Cen­tral Europe through Greece.

The crack­down be­gan on Mon­day night and led to four ar­rests in Greece and Ger­many and the con­fis­ca­tion of 210 ki­los of hashish found in a truck at the port of Igoumenitsa in north­west­ern Greece head­ing for Italy. Ac­cord­ing to Greek po­lice, the mas­ter­minds of the ring are Al­ba­nian drug lords who con­trol some 80 per­cent of the hashish dis­tri­bu­tion into Europe, mainly with trucks.
