Nine people have been arrested and one other killed in a joint counter-narcotics operation by the Portuguese navy and air force.

Three tonnes of drugs were seized in the raid, on the coast of the southern Beja district.

One of the suspects died when he fell out of a speedboat and was struck by a propeller.

The operation is aimed at breaking up what police say is a ring trafficking drugs from Morocco to Spain.
