Heroin Confiscated




MOSCOW -- Russian border guards and customs officials at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport on Wednesday seized more than two kilograms of heroin found in the luggage of a Pakistani tourist, Interfax reported.


The man's documents aroused the suspicion of passport control officers, who called in customs officials. They searched his luggage and found the heroin between double sides in his suitcase, Interfax said.


The heroin seizure is one of the largest this year at Sheremetyevo, officials said. The amount would be worth about $200,000 on the black market.
