BEIJING, Sept. 4 (Xinhuanet) -- Police in Colombia have presented to the media 23 alleged drug traffickers captured in a US-Colombian operation earlier this week.
Colombian and US officials on Friday said they arrested some 30 people and seized 21 airplanes in an operation against a major cocaine trafficker. They also announced a 2.7 million US dollars of reward for the notorious trafficker, Daniel "Loco" Barr-era.
Those arrested were mostly pilots and air traffic controllers and most of the planes were seized in Guatemala and Honduras.
The operation was to dismantle a drug network that was moving 10 tonnes of cocaine each month to the US through central America.
