SULAIMANI — The Erbil Anti-Drug Directorate said on Tuesday (October 20) that two suspects were arrested in possession of narcotics and fake Iraqi and US currencies.

“Three pistols and six mobile phones were also confiscated,” read the statement.

The Kurdistan Region largely acts as a transit route for narcotics coming from Iran and central Asia to Europe, with limited but growing domestic consumption, according to officials and activists.
