Tajikistan drug smuggling

Feb 13, 2013, 11:53 AM

#Afghanistan and #Tajikistan share a 1300-kilometre border, much of it unguarded. That allows Afghanistan's biggest export -- illegal drugs - to flood into Tajikistan en route to #Russia and western #Europe. And that's a situation that could get a lot worse once foreign troops leave Afghanistan. Drug smuggling offers the prospect of easy money in this impoverished and remote border region. But as Rustam Qobil reports, there are also huge dangers.
