Estonia has met the U.S. request for the arrest of Polish citizen Slawomir Soborski and German citizen Michael Filter on drug dealing suspicions, the newspaper Postimees reported on Saturday.

The ex-military were arrested in Estonia on Wednesday.

The US suspects them of the intentions to smuggle cocaine into the US territory and to transport cocaine by aircraft, as well as of the killing of a US drug enforcement officer in Liberia, the newspaper said.

Reportedly, Estonia has so far charged the detainees only with the attempted transportation and distribution of drugs.
