Meyer said the Springboks’ medical team is working very hard on the injured players and that Du Plessis will be given until Friday to fully shake off his injury, but if he fails to recover in time, Pat Cilliers will start in the No 3-shirt.

Thus, we successfully created a quasi-external space where the outdoors can be enjoyed without the trouble of putting up a tent.Save this picture!© Masahiko NishidaThe wall facing the wood deck is made of glass, so we added 7.0m beams extending from the outside to the inside which connected the inside and the outside even more, moderately bridging the interior and exterior space.

Border Patrol seizes aircraft loaded with meth, fentanyl after it flies into US

first_imgTwitter/@CBPArizona(TUSCON, Arizona) — An ultralight aircraft carrying half a million dollars worth of methamphetamine and fentanyl across the southern border was nabbed by Border Patrol agents late Thursday, according to the agency, but the pilot managed to make an escape.The single-person aircraft was tracked flying across the U.S.-Mexico border by agents in the Nogales and Tucson, Arizona, stations at about 11 p.m. The ultralight craft was tracked to a landing site on a dirt road south of Tucson, Customs and Border Protection said in a press release.The drugs were found, but the pilot was not.“An [Air and Marine Operations] helicopter crew and Border Patrol agents conducted an exhaustive search of the area, but did not find the presumed pilot,” CBP said in a statement.Authorities seized 143 pounds of meth and 220 grams of fentanyl worth about $500,000 — packed into two plastic containers riding shotgun on the aircraft.Despite the relatively small quantity, fentanyl is so strong — about 50 times stronger than heroin — that it is measured in micrograms, or 1 milllionth of a gram, according to the Harm Reduction Coalition.Authorities seized 143 pounds of meth and 220 grams of fentanyl worth about $500,000 — packed into two plastic containers riding shotgun on the aircraft.Despite the relatively small quantity, fentanyl is so strong — about 50 times stronger than heroin — that it is measured in micrograms, or 1 milllionth of a gram, according to the Harm Reduction Coalition.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
