Drug smugglers no match for cops
– Two Taiwanese men have been caught trying to smuggle 15kg of heroin in packets of instant noodles from a Bangkok airport, Thai police said.
The pair were trying to return to Taiwan when they were arrested at Suvarnabhumi Airport after a tip-off, police said, without saying where the heroin originated.
The lawless border areas of Myanmar, Thailand and Laos have for decades been a hub for heroin. – AFP
