Myanmar torches $385m of illegal drugs

Myanmar has burned an estimated $385m (£300m) worth of illegal drugs, to mark the UN day against drug abuse and trafficking.

The burning, which happened at an elaborate ceremony, comes as law enforcement agencies struggle to curb the flow of drugs across southeast Asia.

Myanmar remains one of the world's biggest opium producers.
