YANGON, March 9 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar authorities have seized 10.17 million stimulant tablets in the eastern Shan state, according to a statement from the Central Committee for Drug Abuse Control on Thursday.

The seized narcotics are worth over 4 billion kyats (over 1.9 million U.S. dollars), it said.

Two suspects were charged in the case as further investigation was underway.
