Racehorses caught up in international drug sting

Six racehorses have been caught up in a major international drugs sting after more than 80kg of cocaine was seized from a plane in Argentina.

The plane was due to transport the horses, along with other cargo, on part of their journey to Singapore for racing purposes, but it was halted following a security operation at the Ezeiza International Airport near Buenos Aires on Tuesday.
