إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The airport's customs on Wednesday thwarted an attempt to smuggle a large quantity of drugs.

"Customs' officials seized a large quantity of drugs that were placed inside a neatly arranged painting,” the state-run National News Agency reported, noting that the drugs were set up to be sent to Australia.

"4.8 kilograms of narcotic substance which is thought to be a variety of opium were found and they are being inspected by relevant authorities,” the NNA added.

After investigations, two Lebanese nationals were arrested. They were referred along with the seized substance to the Central Anti-Drug Bureau.

Again why don't they give the names of the smuglers? Isn't that public?
