The National Unit to Combat Trafficking in Drugs, with full air and sea support from Portugal’s armed forces, has intercepted a fishing boat in the Mediterranean near the Straits of Gibraltar, with 10 tonnes of hashish on board.
The drug, packed in 333 bales, had been loaded aboard in north Africa but was intercepted and seized, later being transported to the Naval support area in Portimão harbour.
