French navy seizes 10.7 tons of cocaine off African coast

BREST: The French navy has seized 10.7 tons of cocaine with a street value of hundreds of millions of dollars from a Brazilian fishing boat in the Gulf of Guinea, officials said Wednesday.
The operation off the west African coast last Thursday targeted a Brazilian-flagged boat measuring around twenty meters (66 feet).
French authorities requested the raid based on a tip-off from the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), France’s Atlantic maritime prefecture said.
