Security services have seized a large quantity of cannabis heading to Ajdabia city east of Libya, the Interior Ministry confirmed on Monday.

About two quintals of cannabis were discovered in a truck traveling on the coastal road from Brega to Ajdabia.

The security services took action after receiving information about a drug cartel smuggling narcotics into the eastern region.

"A special team had been working to gather information and follow up on the case," a statement by the Interior Ministry explained. The ministry did not identify the apprehended traffickers but confirmed it took legal measures against them and referred them to the Public Prosecutor Office.
