Narcotics: Colombian police seize 'black cocaine'

AFP reports Colombian police have seized a shipment of black cocaine that is almost impossible to detect with traditional anti-trafficking methods, regional police chief Fabio Cardona said.

"It's the first time we have encountered this type of cocaine," Mr Cardona said after reporting that 15 packets of the drug had been found in the fuel tank of a car heading to the El Dorado airport in Bogota.

Black cocaine has no odour, making it extremely difficult to detect, even for well-trained drug-sniffing dogs.
