Albania police seize 200 kilos of cocaine

Albanian authorities say they have seized 200 kilograms (440 pounds) of Colombian cocaine that had been hidden on a truck, and arrested three suspected traffickers.
A statement from the prosecutor general's office says police arrested two Macedonians and one Albanian Tuesday after stopping a truck at the Albanian city of Gjirokastra, 137 miles (220 kilometers) south of the capital Tirana and close to the Greek border.
The cocaine had been dissolved in palm oil.
Albanian authorities said the arrests followed information from western European countries.
