Associated Press

BRUSSELS (AP) — Law enforcement authorities in six different countries have joined forces to crack down on a “super cartel” of drug traffickers that control about a third of Europe’s cocaine trade, Europol said. The European Union crime agency said Monday that 49 suspects were arrested during the investigation, with the latest series of raids in Europe and the United Arab Emirates between November 8 and 19. More than 30 tons of drugs were seized during investigations carried out in Spain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates. The US Drug Enforcement Administration also played a role in the downfall of the organization, which was also involved in money laundering.
