980kg of cocaine seized by cops disappears in Guinea-Bissau

Seven suspects appeared in court in Bissau in a 980kg cocaine case, almost all of which has disappeared. "Last November, 980 kg were seized by the police, but 975 kg have simply disappeared into thin air. It is presumed that it was elements of the security and defence forces who seized this quantity of cocaine," Domingos Monteiro, the director of the judicial police, told the press a cop was arrested in the case. Guinea-Bissau experienced the 14th coup in its troubled history since independence from Portugal in 1974 Feb 1.
The president emerged unharmed after hours of gunfire that left 11 people dead. He sacked the commander of navy and the army's vice chief of staff.
