Customs agents at the Rafik Hariri International Airport thwarted on Wednesday an attempt to smuggle drugs to Saudi Arabia, reported the National News Agency.
It said that agents became suspicious of cardboard boxes being sent to Riyadh and upon inspection they discovered over 500,000 captagon pills concealed in them.
The pills were hidden inside rubber spare parts.
The boxes were going to be sent to the kingdom through express mail.
Investigations are underway to uncover the people behind the shipment.
