Suspected trafficking ring duo held

Two Britons suspected of belonging to an international trafficking ring have been arrested by Portuguese police who also seized more than six tons of hashish.

Police said that armed officers stopped a truck containing three tons of hashish and found a similar amount at a different location.

The operation follows a year-long investigation into a suspected British-led ring based in Portugal's southern Algarve region.
