NANNING, July 13 (Xinhua) -- Police in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region have broken up an armed cross-border drug gang, capturing 9 suspects and confiscating 109.3 kg of heroin, according to a police statement.

The case is the largest drug trafficking case seen in the region to date in terms of the amount of confiscated drugs, according to a Friday statement from the public security bureau of Nanning, the regional capital.
