More than eight tons of cocaine were hidden among boxes of bananas when it was seized, and the fruit went to the monkeys and other creatures at the Blijdorp zoo in Rotterdam. The drugs were seized Monday in the Belgian port of Antwerp aboard a ship from Ecuador, while the bananas were allowed to continue on to the zoo in Rotterdam, the shipment's final destination. Dutch authorities say the seizure is the biggest ever in the Netherlands or Belgium. (AP Photo/Dutch Interior and Justice Ministry, HO)
