Lisbon - Portuguese naval divers fished out 2.5 tons of hashish from waters off a beach in the southern resort area of Faro, after it was dumped by drug-runners, the navy said on Thursday.

Divers and customs authorities spent three days recovering 74 packets of the drug from the water after it was thrown off a boat during a raid.

Authorities arrested two suspected drug-runners.
