The real "underworld" of international drug trafficking...

Combined Police effort finds homemade drug submarine.

The US Drug Enforcement Administration has helped Ecuador seize a submarine capable of transporting tonnes of cocaine.

DEA officials said the diesel electric-powered submarine was built in a remote jungle and captured near a river close to the Ecuador-Colombia border.

Ecuadorian authorities seized the sub before it could make its maiden voyage.

The DEA says it was built for trans-oceanic drug trafficking.
