Belgrade, 7 Oct. (AKI) – In coordinated raids in several cities, Serbian police on Friday broke up a heroin smuggling ring arresting 21 people, police director Milorad Veljovic said.

The police seized over 50 kilogrammes of heroin in Belgrade, Kraljevo and the southern city of Novi Pazar. Among those arrested was the ringleader Hikmet Hajrovic, a Muslim who had already been sentenced to five and half years for drug smuggling, Veljovic said.

Balkans have become a main route of drug smuggling from the Middle East to western Europe and 20 people were arrested in 2009 for smuggling over two tones of cocaine from South America.

According to police records, several drug smuggling gangs operate in Serbia. Veljovic said Hajrovic’s gang on the average distributed up to seven kilos of heroine a week in Belgrade alone.
