French authorities have seized a boat carrying more than three
French authorities have seized a boat carrying more than three tons of cocaine off the coast of Guinea, the Greek Ministry of Merchant Marine said on Friday.

The owner of the boat, which is registered in Panama, has been arrested in Greece. The French navy vessel located the vessel 260 kilometers (160 miles) west of the port of Conakry in Guinea on Thursday, as nine members of the crew, including two Greeks, were getting ready to dump a container full of cocaine overboard.

The Greek ministry said one of the sailors had been previously arrested on cocaine smuggling charges while working on a tanker seized by Spanish authorities in 1995.

The latest seizure was part of an operation involving the US Drug Enforcement Agency, the British authorities and the European police agency Europol.
