Oman intercepts $20 million worth of drugs

Britain’s Royal Navy has seized a tonne of drugs worth an estimated $20 million (Dh73m) from a small vessel in the Gulf of Oman.

In a 10-hour operation, a specialist team from HMS Montrose intercepted a ship loaded with 663kg of heroin, 87kg of methamphetamine and 291kg of hashish and marijuana.

The crew included the Royal Marines, which launched the operation from two rigid-hulled inflatable boats in international waters near Oman.
