Philippines authorities have made the biggest drug seizure in the country's history, confiscating 2,000 pounds (890 kilograms) of methamphetamine worth $120 million in a series of raids this month.

"It is not only the biggest haul for this year, but so far the biggest in history," Philippines Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre told reporters at a news conference in Manila on Tuesday.

Another 290 gallons (1,110 liters) of the drug in its liquid form were confiscated.
