YANGON - Myanmar authorities have seized 140 kilogrammes of heroin packed into blocks and hidden in a car in the notorious "Golden Triangle" area near the Thai border, police said Thursday. 

Two men were arrested in the border town of Tachileik in eastern Shan State during the bust, which netted drugs with a street value of $2.3 million, police told AFP.
