Heroin plan sunk
NAVY officers aboard an Australian warship have seized more than $88 million worth of heroin while on patrol in the Middle East.
Crew from the HMAS Warramunga made the 295kg discovery after one of its Seahawk helicopters spotted a suspect boat.
It’s the 11th seizure in the seven months since the Warramunga was deployed. Almost 20 tonnes of hashish and nearly two tonnes of heroin, valued at about $1.56 billion, have been intercepted so far.
