JEDDAH: Saudi Arabian Border Guards have intercepted two boats attempting to smuggle large quantities of cannabis into the Kingdom.
The boats were intercepted off the coast of Makkah province recently, although no exact date was provided.
They were “spotted entering the regional sea from Yemeni waters,” Border Guards spokesman Lt. Col. Misfer bin Ghannam Al-Quraini said.
The first boat was attempting to reach Jeddah when it was captured. Three Yemeni nationals were arrested trying to smuggle around 300 kilograms of cannabis.
The second boat was spotted two days after the first operation and was carrying more than 200 kilograms of hashish. Four Yemenis were arrested in Qunfudah port.
