KUWAIT, Aug 10 (KUNA) -- The Ministry of Interior (MoI) announced on Wednesday that it has confiscated 1.5 million pills of the amphetamine-like drug Captagon, which were stashed in two containers that came from Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the statement revealed that two individuals, a Syrian and a Saudi, have been apprehended in connection to the incident and will face legal action.
It also added that the two have confessed to bringing in copious amounts of the drug on a clandestine mission. (end)
