Australia makes largest meth seizure
Australian police say they have made their largest ever seizure of the drug methamphetamine hidden in a shipment from southern China.
The drugs weighed a total of 585kg (1,290lb) and had an estimated street value of 430m Australian dollars ($440m: £291m).
Three men - a Singaporean, an Australian and a Hong Kong man - have been arrested and are due to appear in court in Sydney on Thursday.
