Peru drugs hidden in giant squid [excerpts]

Police in Peru have seized about 700kg of cocaine hidden in frozen giant squid bound for Mexico and the US.

The drugs - worth about $17.5m - were sealed in several layers of plastic and other wrapping material and covered in pepper to divert sniffer dogs.

Police seized the drugs hidden in a container of 25 tons of giant squid about to leave Paita (Piura) for Mexico.
