Muscat: Oman Customs has foiled an attempt to smuggle large quantities of adulterated cigarettes into Oman.

"Al Wajajah port customs thwarted the smuggling of large quantities of adulterated cigarettes, which were hidden in the front and bottom of a truck, inside a box and cylinders prepared for smuggling purposes," Oman Customs said in a statement.
This is the second time in just two days that customs officers at Wajajah have thwarted the smuggling of illicit cigarettes. On October 17, another attempt was made to smuggle tobacco products hidden in the engine and cavities of a refrigeration truck.
