Vastavam web: French customs officials said today that they had intercepted 135 kilograms (300 pounds) of Captagon, dubbed the “jihadists’ drug”, at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport this year, a first for France. Captagon, a type of amphetamine, is one of the most commonly used drugs among fighters in the Syrian war.Customs officials at Charles de Gaulle discovered 350,000 Captagon pills weighing 70 kilograms on January 4 hidden among industrial moulds exported from Lebanon and apparently heading for the Czech Republic.
An investigation was launched by German and Czech authorities “and it revealed that the real intended destination was Saudi Arabia, by passing through Turkey”, the agency said. Captagon is classified by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime as an “amphetamine-type stimulant” and usually blends amphetamines, caffeine and other substances.
