Saudi prince and four others were detained on Monday in Lebanon in the largest drug bust in the history of the Beirut airport, security source said.
Saudi prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz and four others were detained by airport security while allegedly “attempting to smuggle about two tons of Captagon pills and some cocaine,” a security source told AFP, according to the Express Tribune.
“The smuggling operation is the largest one that has been foiled through the Beirut International Airport,” the source said on condition of anonymity.
Captagon is the brand name for the amphetamine phenethylline, a synthetic stimulant. The banned drug is consumed mainly in the Middle East and has reportedly been widely used by fighters in Syria.


Same shit, different day.

Some of the comments I have seen on this last night made me laugh. It didn't really happen because the NYT and WaPo haven't covered it. Only RT. ::face.palm::

I saw some stats on captagon recently. Jordan accounts to more than half of all precursor chemicals in the world to make it. Not accountable for cleaning products as there are other more appropriate chemicals for them.....
