MNS 'La Fayette' from CTF150 seize over 400 kilograms heroin | Coastweek

Marine Nationale frigate La Fayette has seize 413 kgs of heroin during a patrol in support of Combined Maritime Forces (CMF). La Fayette’s seizure is the third for the French Navy in support of Combined Task Force 150 (CTF 150). Together with Marine Nationale destroyer Jean de Vienne, the two French ships have confiscated over $370 million USD of drugs over the last two months. Asian-refined heroin derived from Afghan or Burmese poppy seeds flows by dhow sailing vessel and by air into Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. There it is redirected to Europe, and sometimes, via Nigeria, to Mexico and North America. Al-Shabaab, the Islamist, Al-Qaeda-affiliated terror movement of Somalia, derives much of its predatory income from the movement of Asian heroin, charcoal and locally produced qat [miraa].

Masai Mara is now an all year round destination with Safari Link | Coastweek

TRAVEL IN SAFETY AND COMFORT WITH SAFARILINK -- Cessna Caravan is well suited to the "bush" airstrips that make up the majority of the destinations served by the airline and the ability to cope with the very short flight time between many of the airstrips served by the scheduled services. This workhorse of the fleet is a rugged fixed under-carriage aircraft that is ideal for landing on the 'dirt' airstrips common in the game parks. Its high wings and large windows allow exceptional viewing of the unfolding scenery and animals whilst on-route. The aircraft is powered by a Pratt & Whitney PT6-114A turbo-prop engine. The Cessna Caravan is used by governmental organizations and by a large number of companies for police, air ambulance, passenger transport, air charter, freight and parachuting operations..
