Kenya Navy seized 343 kilograms of heroin off Mombasa, Kenya, two weeks ago.

 

According to Anadolu Agency, the operation took place off the Lamu coast, some 350km north of Mombasa, when the Navy vessel intercepted an Iranian-flagged ship named MV Al-Noor.

The police held the ship for almost two weeks in the port while they investigated the cargo it was carrying. The estimated value of the confiscated materials is around $2.5 million.

The investigation is still ongoing.
