A 16 kilo (35.5 pounds) consignment of cocaine that Mexican drug traffickers recently lost has turned up in an unlikely place -- the United Nations in New York.
Police and UN officials Thursday described how two fake UN bags containing the drugs -- which experts said had a street value of about $2 million -- set off a security alert when they were delivered, apparently by accident, to the the global body's headquarters.
The bags, which had the UN symbol printed on them, were shipped from Mexico through the DHL delivery company's center in Cincinnati, Ohio, Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne of the New York Police Department told AFP.
But the bags had no address on them, nor any return to sender details.
"Somebody in Mexico is probably in trouble now having let a significant amount of cocaine out of their possession," he added.
UN officials said the bags were like flour sacks but were the wrong color or material to be any kind of official bag. "It was not a diplomatic pouch. That I can say categorically," UN spokesman Martin Nesirky told reporters.

It was supposed to be sent to the Clinton Liebrary.
Sure. Blame it on Mexico.
Yeah. Right. Not our bags.
Well, there goes the ‘fuel’ for the next couple of Obama fundraisers.
“It was supposed to be sent to the Clinton Liebrary.”
Don’t you mean Clinton Lay-brary?
Damn I hate when I accidentally send something WORTH $2 MILLION DOLLARS to the wrong address! Did it have a return address?
Accidentally set off an alert? Must have some newbies working security.
They didn’t order it and they didn’t inhale, either.
...travel by private planes, telling Homeland Security to F-off.
Wow, what a misunderstanding! I bet if a package for the stuff sgowed at my house, law enforcement would be equally understanding!
Yeah. Right. Not our bags.
I was just holding them for a friend....
Makes you wonder how many times the scumbags have carried drugs and other illegal materials in their diplomatic pouches.
I have a solution..............Throw up some securty gates and razor wire around the place and VWALLA! we have a new prison in NY with guests already included.
It might soon come out in the news that a worker offloading incoming diplomatic pouches at the UN processing center was the intended recipient. That worker may have missed the incoming fake pouches that were spotted by others and thought to be possible bombs.
