RABAT, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- Morocco's police at the Mohammed V airport in Casablanca arrested on Friday two Tunisian women over alleged involvement in cannabis smuggling.

The two suspects, aged 24 and 27, were arrested with 11.46 kg of cannabis hidden under their clothing, said Moroccan police in a statement.

They were nabbed while they were preparing to leave Casablanca in a flight bound for Tunis airport, the statement added.

Despite efforts to crack down on cannabis farming in the last decade, Morocco remains one of the world's largest producers of the cannabis resin, according to the United Nation's Office on Drugs and Crime. Enditem
