A submarine seized off the Spanish coast over the weekend, the first caught trying to smuggle narcotics into Europe, was carrying three tonnes of cocaine worth 100 million euros ($110 million), officials said Wednesday.

Police intercepted the 20-metre (65-foot) submarine on Saturday off the coast of the northwestern Galicia region.

They were only able to determine the amount of drugs inside after they managed to refloat the vessel three days later and tow it to a nearby port.
