Dutch customs said Monday they had found 200 kilograms of cocaine with a street value of about 10 million euros (13 million dollars) in a container at a storage firm in the country's south.

"An employee of the facility found the merchandise in the container as it was being offloaded, and called customs," spokesman Mohamed el-Mokaddem told AFP.

The container, which had arrived from South America, contained a number of bags in which there were also smaller packages of cocaine, bound with tape.
