Six Nigerians arrested in Haiti with cocaine

Port-au-Prince, Nov 10 (Prensa Latina) The Haitian Police arrested at the Toussaint Louverture International Airport six Nigerian citizens who were carrying 1.76 kilograms of cocaine, the local press reported on Wednesday.

The citizens were due to board a flight bound for Paris, France, carrying the drug in their intestines, when they were intercepted by the agents of the Anti-Narcotics Brigade.

The Nigerians were transferred to the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police, which opened an investigation, according to Vant Bef Info.

In late October, the Coast Guard arrested off the coast of the island of La Gonave, northwest of Port-au-Prince, three Jamaican citizens to whom it seized 635.5 kilograms of marijuana.

Haiti is located in at least two of the routes identified by the US Drug Enforcement Administration, through which allegedly about 22 percent of the drugs arriving in the country circulate.
