    BRUSSELS, August 17 (RIA Novosti) - Belgian police seized $67 million worth of cannabis dissimulated in double-bottom olive barrels, Radio Contact said Friday.

    Police found a number of 250-litre metal drums with 11 tons of cannabis inside in Antwerp, a major Belgian port on the North Sea coast.

    The drugs apparently originated in Morocco.

    The 41-year-old CEO of the receiving company, House Toys, has already been detained, and police believe the shipment was the work of an international cannabis network delivering drugs to the French and Belgian black markets.
