Vietnam police seize eight tons of marijuana

HANOI, Vietnam -- Vietnamese authorities have seized marijuana worth US$90 million in the country's biggest drugs haul, police said Thursday.

The 8 tons of marijuana was believed to be in transit to Canada via China, said Col. Nguyen Anh Tuan, director of the Ministry of Public Security's Anti Drug Department.

He said the marijuana was seized earlier this week on two trucks heading for the border with China. It had arrived in the port of Hai Phong in late April on a ship from Pakistan and was ultimately destined for Canada.

Four Chinese and an Indonesian have been arrested in connection with the smuggling and others were being sought, Tuan said. It's unclear when the five will be put on trial.
