The Moroccan police said on Friday it had seized 1.37 tons of cocaine in Casablanca.

The drug was concealed in a cargo of imported frozen fish found at a distribution company in Morocco’s largest city, it said in a statement.

Preliminary findings suggest the cargo was imported from a Latin American country via Spain, the Moroccan police said, noting that investigations are ongoing.
