BEIJING: Chinese police have with US help seized 70 kilograms of cocaine in the country’s biggest single haul in recent years, state media said, as Beijing cracks down on drugs in a wider war on excess. Police were tipped off about a suspect shipping container from Peru by United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officials, the official news agency Xinhua said. “By analyzing phone messages and emails of a Mexican drug cartel member who had been murdered, the DEA said the container would arrive in Shanghai on August 18, from where it would be put on board a ship destined for New Zealand,” the Xinhua report said on Thursday.
