TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s judiciary says authorities have detained two Swedish nationals over drug smuggling. The spokesman for the judiciary was quoted by the Mizan news agency as saying the case is under investigation and that Iran has informed the Swedish government and its embassy in Tehran about the development. The report did not say where in Iran the Swedes were detailed or what type and quantity of drugs were confiscated from them. Iran lies on a main smuggling route linking the opium poppy fields of Afghanistan with Europe. Iranian authorities confiscate hundreds of tons of narcotics — mostly opium — every year.
