Buenos Aires: Police have detained five Argentines and one Spaniard with 14kg of cocaine seized in seven pairs of skis. The cocaine had allegedly been compressed into tablets that were stuffed into specially built equipment. Last year, British police found about 400kg of cocaine hidden in a frozen beef container that had been imported from Argentina. The Argentine Security Secretary, Sergio Berni, said the gang was also involved in selling ecstasy to well-off clients in the capital, Buenos Aires. The group had been under investigation for about six months, police said. The operation seized a total of 24kg of cocaine and between 40,000 and 50,000 pills of ecstasy. The group was allegedly preparing to fly to the Spanish capital, Madrid, when the authorities made the arrests.
