Syrian customs authorities have seized hundreds of thousands of smuggled stimulant pills bound for Saudi Arabia, a state-owned newspaper reported Thursday. The government daily al-Thawra said that 400,000 pills of the amphetamine-like drug Captagon hidden in bathroom tissue rolls were seized last month at a shipping company office in the northern city of Aleppo. The pills were bound for Saudi Arabia and a Syrian man from Aleppo who was involved was later arrested in the Syrian port city of Latakia. The paper provided no further details.
