Damietta customs authorities on Sunday thwarted an attempt to smuggle two containers coming from an Arab country with about 20 million drug pills inside.
The authorities acted upon a tip-off from anti-narcotic department that a person holding the nationality of an Arab state was planning to bring in amounts of Captagon drugs.
A committee was formed to search the containers and found Captagon tablets hidden inside the containers.
Approximate cost of the seized amounts is EGP 200 million.
The prosecution was notified for investigations.
