East Africa Wants to Crack Down on Flow of Heroin Into Region

East African countries have expressed growing concern over the smuggling of Afghan heroin into their ports via the Indian Ocean that eventually find their way to Europe, Reuters reports. To crack down on the flow of the narcotics through their region, they want to try alleged traffickers and hire experts to investigate the drug rings, the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime said.
