Gang arrested for drug trafficking

22 October 2004

MADRID – Spanish police have detained three Pakistanis and six Iranians suspected of drugs trafficking and money laundering.

The police said the nine men were picked up in a raid in Madrid late Thursday after a series of violent robberies during which some of the suspects had posed as police officers.

All nine face expulsion following the raid which ended a monitoring operation which began in August.
