– Australian authorities have helped seize 750 kilograms of cocaine destined for the Australian market that was hidden in a luxury yacht in Vanuatu.
The seizure was part of a joint operation with South Pacific countries and the United States drugs agency.
The seizure – with an estimated street value of $370 million – is one of the largest drug seizures involving Australian authorities.
Vanuatu police raided the yacht, the Raj, docked in the Vanuatu capital Port Vila, earlier this week.
Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Ramzi Jabbour said the international drug syndicate’s concealment was very sophisticated.
