So down in Guyana
Authorities in Guyana have discovered a submarine they believe was going to be used to ferry drugs across the Atlantic.
The submarine is 20 metres long and powered by a diesel engine, anti-narcotics unit director James Singh said Friday.
“It is the first time we have discovered a submarine on the Atlantic side and this is startling,” he said. “This seems to be a huge operation by groups which are setting up shop here.”
The submarine was found in Guyana’s northwest coastal Waini Region near the Venezuelan border. Singh said he believes it could have been headed to Europe or Africa. No one has been arrested.
