Turkey seizes 5 tonnes of marijuana near Iran border
Turkish police seized five tonnes of marijuana with a street value of at least $2 million near the border with Iran on Tuesday and officials said they were investigating the involvement of Kurdish militants.

 

Turkish security sources say drug trafficking is a major source of income for the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which took up arms 28 years ago with the aim of carving out a Kurdish state in the southeastern border region with Iran and Iraq. (Reuters)
