Iran seizes opium hidden in screwdrivers bound for Europe

Iran’s customs officials have discovered and confiscated a large amount of opium hidden beneath the handles of screwdrivers in postal shipments bound for the United Kingdom.

Over two kilograms of the illegal narcotics were found as border protection officials were inspecting the UK-bound postal shipments, which contained a large number of screwdrivers.

Iran has long been fighting a relentless battle against international drug networks.

The country, which has a 900-kilometer common border with Afghanistan, is used as a transit route for drug trafficking from Afghanistan to markets in Europe.
