Peru seizes 5 tons of drugs, worth over $200 mln

Police in Peru say they've seized about five tons cocaine and marijuana in a nationwide narcotics operation.

The haul was picked up from a number of locations including a jungle area of Cusco.

The haul is believed to be worth over $200 million on the international black market.

The country is the world’s top producer of cocaine, alongside Colombia, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

The drugs are on display and being guarded by soldiers on the streets of Lima.
