TBILISI, DFWatch–Police Wednesday seized more than 5kg of cocaine at Tbilisi airport and detained four people. The large drugs bust indicates a new transit route, the Ministry of Internal Affairs says.

The detainees are two citizens of Brazil born in 1979 and 1981, a citizen of Ecuador born in 1980 and a citizen of South Africa born in 1957.

An investigation has been launched for illegal import and possession of a particularly large amount of drugs.

Over the last month, employees of the central criminal police department have detained five other foreigners who brought in more than 12kg of cocaine.
