Italy seizes 50m-euro drug shipment to Libya

Italian police seized a huge shipment of the "fighter drug" Tramadol, thought to be destined for so-called Islamic State (IS) in Libya.

The cargo of opiates, worth an estimated 50m euros (£44m), was intercepted in Gioia Tauro, a port in the far south of Italy.

The millions of pills, which can suppress fatigue, had been manufactured in India, police said.
