Two tons of morphine found in caves

Two tons of morphine found in caves
April 18, 2005

The authorities seized nearly two tonnes of morphine worth millions of dollars from a remote southwestern village near the Afghan border, a security officer said yesterday.

The drugs were found in caves near the town of Chaghi in Baluchistan province, which borders Afghanistan, in two separate raids on Saturday, said Rizwan Malik, an officer of the paramilitary Frontier Corps.

The morphine, which is refined from opium, often in southern Afghanistan, was probably destined for the international black market.

Malik said two lots of 950 kg (2095 lbs) each of morphine were recovered in the raids, carried out after a tip-off but no arrests were made as the drugs had been abandoned.

Officials say a tonne of morphine is worth about $10 million on the international market. Most illegal drugs seized in Pakistan come from Afghanistan.
