RABAT (AFP) - Moroccan customs agents detained a Dutch couple on Tuesday who were allegedly trying to take more than a tonne of hashish out of the country in their camper van, a media report said.

Police said the 42-year-old driver and his 22-year-old companion were trying to take the ferry from Tangier to the Spanish port of Algeciras when they were caught with 1.37 tonnes of the drug, according to Morocco's MAP news agency.

Customs officials searched the camper and discovered dozens of packets hidden in the vehicle's floorboard.

The value of the drugs was estimated at more than EUR 1.25 million on the European market.
