Rome, Mar 22 (Prensa Latina) Anti-drug forces of the Arma de Carabinieri of Italy dismantled an international drug trafficking network operating in the north of the country, as a result of investigations started in 2018, a statement says.

Four drug traffickers of Chinese origin were captured as a result of the operation. They purchased large quantities of drugs of various types in Spain, which were then distributed from Italy, via international parcels and other routes, to the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
