Two men are being questioned in Belfast about an international drugs trafficking ring.

The pair, aged 23 and 30, were held after police raided a house in Donegall Pass in south Belfast.

They are the latest in a series of arrests as part of a Europe-wide operation into the supply of 'skunk' cannabis. Officers have seized £1m worth of the drugs.

In the past nine days, the PSNI has arrested 12 people across Northern Ireland and searched 22 properties. Detective Inspector Andy Dunlop said: "Five people have been remanded in custody, two were released on bail pending a report to the PPS and three others are due to appear in court on Saturday."
