ISTANBUL (AA) – Turkish police seized on Thursday 24.5 kg (53.46 pounds) of cocaine hidden in a box with flowers at the Istanbul Airport.
Anti-narcotic teams in Istanbul acted on a tip-off that a substantial amount of cocaine was brought to Turkey from Colombia, security sources said.
They added that a search for suspects who were meant to take the package is underway.
