Turkish customs officials seized a record 2 tons of marijuana at the border crossing with Bulgaria, the country's trade minister said on Tuesday.

"In an operation carried out at the Kapikule [customs gate] by customs officials of our ministry, 2.07 tons [4,140 pounds] marijuana was seized and a new record was broken," Ruhsar Pekcan said in a tweet.

The drug was seized from a lorry which was stopped at the border crossing.

A few months back, customs officials seized 1.7 tons of drugs (3,400 pounds) at the Istanbul Airport, the trade minister said./aa
