[Guinean news] Boké drugs raid nets local officials

A cocaine bust in the eastern town of Boké has seen the arrest of the mayor and top police officials as well as the region's governor.

An aircraft allegedly carrying a large quantity of cocaine mysteriously landed and took off early on Thursday [Sept. 5] in Boke.

The officials were taking to Conakry for questioning.

Drugs' trafficking is an increasing problem in parts of Guinea, as neighboring Guinea-Bissau is widely acknowledged to have become Africa's first narco-state.
