Police in the border region of Evros, northeastern Greece, said on Monday they seized more than 76 kilograms of unprocessed hashish in a Sunday night raid.

Two foreign nationals, aged 25 and 17, were arrested as they tried to transport the drugs across the Evros River to Turkey aboard a plastic dinghy.

The two men had earlier entered Greece illegally from Turkey. The two men were scheduled to appear before a prosecutor in Alexandroupoli.
