Authorities in Burma have burned more than nine tons of opium poppy seeds and other illegal drugs in the northwestern state of Rakhine.
The public burning on Tuesday was part of a major government effort to combat illegal drug production and trafficking, which started last year.
Officials said the poppy seeds and morphine were seized from smugglers carrying the drugs from unnamed neighboring countries and other regions in Burma.
The United Nations International Narcotics Control Board has identified Burma as the world's leading opium producer.
