Customs officials foil attempts to smuggle 17kg of drugs into Qatar

Airport customs officials have thwarted attempts by three men to smuggle some 17kg (37lb) of drugs, mostly marijuana, into Qatar, authorities announced.

The busts of three men, all hailing from Asian countries, are the latest in a long line of drug smuggling attempts that the country has foiled this year as it struggles against becoming an increasingly popular transit point for trafficking.

The men were all aprehended at Customs in the passenger terminal over the past few days, the official added.

They were handed over to security authorities to face charges.
