RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Saudi border guards Saturday aborted an attempt to smuggle two tons of hashish into the Arab kingdom, reports said.

Daily al-Watan said the illicit drugs were discovered by police patrolling the island of Okran in the province of Jubail in eastern Saudi Arabia.

The newspaper quoted security sources as saying around 4,000 pounds of hashish were seized.

The drugs were transported to the island by an Iranian ship, the source said.
