Colombia lassoes 10 tons

Colombia’s armed forces made their largest drug bust of the year, seizing 10 tons of cocaine from the National Liberation Army (ELN), a leftist guerrilla group. Armed forces also destroyed two drug labs belonging to ELN, located in the Narino province near the country’s border with Ecuador. The Colombian government said 580 tons were seized in 2020, with coca cultivation and cocaine production numbers reaching a record 245,000 hectares and 1,010 metric tons.
