Paraguay will begin patrolling its border with Bolivia by air in order to crack down on drug trafficking, reports La Razon. Tucano combat planes were deployed April 27 at noon from Paraguay, to begin monitoring any illicit flights entering Paraguayan airspace from Bolivia. Argentina is also reportedly considering a law that would authorize shooting down planes suspected of smuggling drugs into the country. According to one member of the opposition party, there are between 100 and 150 such flights entering Argentina every day, reports EFE.
