SANNIQUELLIE, June 29 (LINA) - The Drugs Enforcement Agency (DEA) Nimba  detachment has burnt 364kg of marijuana worth over L$2.7 million.

The burning of the drugs was observed by representatives of the Local Authority, officers of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the Liberian National Police, Youth, student leaders and the media.
