A record 4.4 tons of cocaine packed in containers of soy flour and destined for Togo has been seized in Montevideo recently.
Uruguay has increasingly become a hub for South American narcotic shipments to Africa and Europe.
Uruguayan navy and customs officials said image scans showing hidden anomalies led to the find in a first container.
Further containers were being opened, and if all four containers held the same quantity the seizure could amount to around 15 tons.
