Iranian police seize 3mn units of ecstasy
Iranian police have issued a report concerning its activities of the last nine months, providing evidence of the seizure of more than three million units of ecstasy.
“More than three million ecstasy tablets have been seized all over Iran in the past nine months," the commander of the drug squad, General Hamid Reza Hossein-Abadi, said.
“Children and youngsters are the main targets of offenders. The multicolored pills were imprinted with various signs and marks to be more tempting for them,” Hossein-Abadi said.
He indicated a UN report saying there were 12,000 tons of various types of narcotics stored in Afghanistan, providing 93 percent of illegal drugs in all around of the world.
“Iranian police have managed to seize 340 tons of drugs and various narcotics in the past nine months,” Hossein-Abadi said.
The seizures led to the deaths of 28 of the forces of the Drug Control Headquarters, while 197 dealers and traffickers were killed during numerous deadly missions.
