Europol finds drugs, money and many victims
A week-long crackdown on organized crime by Europol has resulted in 314 arrests, seizure of 2.4 tons of cocaine, and the discovery of hundreds of victims of human trafficking, according to the agency.

Europol has coordinated the action, called Ciconia Alba (white stork), which in addition to the seizure of drugs, has revealed 529 victims of human trafficking.

Police forces in 52 countries, as well as Interpol and the EU border agency Frontex, have collaborated on the matter.

Europol Director Rob Wainwright said in a statement that "cooperation between countries and organizations worldwide is the modern answer to the boundless and serious organized crime."

Greek police also uncovered a rogue travel agency that facilitated smuggling of migrants and trafficking.

The week-long operation was directed primarily against smugglers, drug dealing and credit card fraud.

745 migrants were stopped, and in total police seized 181,500 euros in cash.
