Turkish security forces seized a massive amount of heroin in the southern province of Mersin on Tuesday.

Acting on a tip-off, anti-narcotics teams waged an operation to a warehouse of fruits & vegetables in Mersin's Akdeniz town and found 313.5 kg of heroin hidden inside cases.

The illicit drug was brought to Mersin from Turkey's eastern provinces and traffickers were planning to send it to Europe, officials said.

A total of 6 people were detained in the operation.
