Terracotta pots used to conceal huge drugs haul


Australian police have seized what they say is one of the largest hauls of illegal drugs ever made.

Crystal methamphetamine and heroine, worth more A$500m (US$526m; £335m) were hidden in an imported shipment of terracotta pots.

Four Hong Kong citizens and three Australians were arrested during raids in Sydney following a year-long investigation.

Details were given at a news conference by Border Protection Service Chief Operating Officer Michael Pezzullo and Deputy Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin.
