Text size Aa Aa

Colombian cocaine worth more than 10 million euros has been seized by Spanish police.

It was found on a Danish boat on the Algarve coast in Portugal.

The 260 packages of cocaine were hidden in a compartment normally used as a water tank in the bow of the sailboat ‘Sara’.

The sailboat and two cars were also seized.

The cocaine came from Colombia and was bound for the European market.

Police arrested five people on suspicion of drug trafficking and believe they have dismantled a network that operates from Madrid.
