Three Tanzanian drug traffickers extradited to U.S.

Image result for Three Tanzanian drug traffickers extradited to U.S.Three Tanzanians including an alleged drug king-pin have been extradited to the United States on narcotics trafficking charges.

U.S. embassy in a statement said the arrests of Ali Katib Haji Hassan, also known as Shkuba, and his two associates Iddy Salehe Mfullu and Tiko Emanual Adam, were the result of collaboration between Tanzanian and U.S. security, law enforcement and justice agencies.


Tanzanian President John Magufuli launched a drive against narcotics in February, reflecting growing international concerns that East Africa is being used as a hub by drug traffickers.

Hassan was arrested by Tanzanian authorities in 2014 for smuggling more than 200 kg of heroin.
