    MOSCOW, April 13 (RIA Novosti) - Two drug trafficking networks, allegedly from Tajikistan and Uzbekstan, have been broken up in Moscow and the Moscow Region, with 14 kilograms of heroin worth about $400,000 confiscated, a Moscow law enforcement spokesman said Friday.

    The source said two Tajik nationals were arrested near the Kazansky train station in Moscow Thursday. The two were carrying about seven kilograms of heroin.

    Later the same day, an Uzbek driving a BMW car was stopped in the Moscow Region, also with seven kilograms of heroin on him.

    The source said the drug might have come from Afghanistan.

    A criminal case has been launched.
