CAIRO — Egyptian police have seized six tons of hashish hidden under a shipment of tomato paste on board a cargo vessel bound for South Yemen from Greece, state television reports.

The broadcast did not say when the hashish was discovered or give the name of the vessel, which was raided shortly after it had passed through the Suez Canal into the Red Sea. Cairo newspapers Wednesday put the street value of the hashish at $24 million.
