German customs detect heroin woven into rugs

LEIPZIG: German customs officials have found 45 kilograms of heroin woven into a shipment of Iranian rugs. Officials said that the nine carpets, which had arrived in Germany after being shipped from Iran, raised the suspicions of customs officials at airport because they seemed heavier than normal.

X-rays of the shipment revealed that highly refined heroin worth several million dollars had been woven into the rugs, which were due to be shipped on to Poland, France, Belgium, and Africa. The discovery has so far led to the arrests of a lot of suspects in Poland, France, and Belgium.
