Half tonne of Cocaine seized in Solomon Islands

Two men have been charged in Sydney, and about 500 kilograms of cocaine seized in the Solomon Islands in an international probe. A joint investigation ended when 500kg of cocaine - a magnitude not seen before by the South Pacific nation, was discovered inside the hull of a Belgian-registered, 44-foot double-masted yacht moored in Honiara.
Zhen Tao Qi, 41, from Wahroonga is a senior syndicate figure, if not the head. Zheng Zhao, 39, is also facing charges. Qi and Zhao were refused bail. They are due back in court on Nov 28.
