In September, police seized 1.8 tons of cocaine in the nation’s largest ever drug bust. The drugs came from Colombia and were destined for the Al Qaeda network based in North Africa. Authorities have long suspected the Islamic militants of involvement in the drug industry. This is the second large drug seizure this year, perhaps evidence of the nation’s greater commitment to fighting the drug trade. Guinea-Bissau was called a “narco-state” by the UN, but since the US arrested some key politicians on drug related charges, the traffic of cocaine through Guinea-Bissau appears to have decreased.

Pray that there will be further genuine and far-reaching commitment to addressing this issue (The Bible, Proverbs 16:3).
