Myanmar burns nearly $20 million of seized drugs
Myanmar set ablaze nearly $20 million worth of methamphetamine tablets and other drugs seized after recent fighting with ethnic Kokang rebels that forced more than 30,000 people to flee into China and left 26 government troops dead, state media reported Sunday.
Police said it was the biggest drug seizure in Myanmar this year, the Myanma Ahlin newspaper said. In a special ceremony Saturday, the government burned 11.9 million methamphetamine tablets and other drugs in Lauk Kai region in northeastern Shan State. (AP)
