Straight Out of Borat

Camel Smuggling. No, seriously.

ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia (AP) - Authorities in southern Russia believe they have uncovered a criminal ring that has been smuggling camels from Kazakhstan, police said Thursday. Police in the Astrakhan region, a land of grassy steppes along the Volga River, are investigating a group of residents and Kazakh citizens on suspicion of smuggling 14 camels from the adjacent Central Asian country, and believe there may have been more cases, regional police officials said. The 14 camels were brought across the border without going through customs or facing a quarantine, the police said.

Rostov will be a name familiar to those of you who know about the eastern front in the Second World War. And now, an invasion of...camels?
