 Opium Haul in Burma
January 23, 1994

Rangoon--Anti-drug squads have arrested seven people and seized
more than 32kg of raw opium in Burma's former capital of Mandalay,
according to the state-run newspaper, New Light of Myanmar.
  The arrests were made earlier this week and the seven people
arrested have been charged under Burma's tough anti-drug laws,
which could bring the death penalty.
