TAGS: Crime

Police in northern Greece are questioning two foreign nationals, both aged 28, who were stopped near the Turkish border on Friday with just over a kilogram of heroin in their possession.

The two men, who are believed to be members of a cross-border drug smuggling racket, were caught near the border town of Didymoteicho.

It appears that they used a plastic boat to sneak into Greece across the Evros River.

The pair attempted to resist arrest, police sources said.
