Praia, Cape Verde

One of the police officers involved in the raid on the freighter Eser where nearly 10 tonnes of cocaine were found, looks at the Abiete, a Brazilian fishing vessel caught smuggling two tonnes of cocaine in August 2019.

The Cape Verde islands lie on what's known as 'Highway 10', the DEA's nickname for the smuggling route at 10 degrees north which provides the shortest distance from Latin America to Europe.
