Customs Seizes Cocaine

MOSCOW -- Customs officials confiscated 1.3 kilograms of cocaine from a Lebanese citizen who was en route from Peru to Syria.

Sheremetyevo Airport officials found the drugs between the shell and the glass bottle of two thermoses in the man's luggage, the press service of the State Customs Committee said Wednesday.

Law enforcement agencies estimated the cocaine's value at $130,000.

A criminal case has been launched against the suspect.
