ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Police in Sicily say they have seized some 2,600 kilos (5732 pounds) of cannabis in what they hailed as one of the most important drug raids that had been made on the island. Cannabis Indica plants were discovered growing in eleven plastic tunnels 35 metres (115 feet) long on an agricultural plot of land near the town of Licata in southern Sicily. On another plot of land, owned by the same person, a further 46,5 kilos (102 pounds) of cannabis was discovered drying in a small building. Police said on Thursday (September 14) they are now working to dismantle the network of dealers and suppliers that have been discovered following the drug seizure.
