Drone used to smuggle drugs into Kuwait
Kuwaiti authorities have arrested a man who used a drone to smuggle in drugs from a neighbouring country, the anti-narcotics department said Thursday.
It said the department had seized four kilogrammes (nine pounds) of amphetamine and one kilogramme of hashish.
Kuwait's interior ministry posted a picture of the drone and the drugs on its Twitter handle.
Drones are sold in Kuwait but authorisation is required from the interior ministry for their use.
Under Kuwaiti law, operating a drone without permission can result in a three-year jail sentence or a 3,000-dinar ($10,000) fine.
