Almost 12 kg (26.4 lbs) of heroin has been seized
Almost 12 kg (26.4 lbs) of heroin has been seized from two men in Russia's Urals city of Yekaterinburg, a police spokesman said on Friday.

Police found the drugs, worth some $300,000 on the black market, while searching the car of two Tajik nationals, aged 28 and 44.

Russia's Urals is a major point on the heroin-smuggling route from Afghanistan, the world's largest heroin producer, through the former Soviet Central Asian republics and on to Western Europe via Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Most of the heroin sold in Russia is smuggled into the country via Tajikistan, which shares a border with Afghanistan.
