Dominican Authorities Incinerate 1.5 Tons of Drugs

SANTO DOMINGO Dominican authorities incinerated on Thursday 1,320 kg (2,907lbs) of cocaine and other illegal drugs confiscated in the last two weeks, bringing the amount of narcotics destroyed this year to 13,000kg (14 tons).

The substances were burned at an army installation in Pedro Brand, a town in Santo Domingo province, with the participation of representatives of various institutions.

The incinerated drugs were confiscated in law enforcement operations during the period Dec. 3-11.

The Dominican Republic is a transit nation for illegal drugs from South America on route to the United States often via nearby Puerto Rico and Europe.
