#1 Gotta be 58.8kg. More than enough to fill the desert tent with smoke and get the camels flying. An 18 wheel tractor trailer load limit is 80,000 pounds.

#2 Given the statement "...hidden in the cavities" weight listed.
Imagine how big the hauler/trailer had to be, to have enough space for cavities to hide
59 Tons of dope?

So I am leaning to News Typo?

Either way here is a alternative news source.

"The security patrols of the Makkah Al-Mukarramah Police managed to thwart the promotion of about 54 kilograms of cannabis, which was seized hidden inside a vehicle."

As you read down you see 54KG becomes 53,792.
? Could a Comma vs Period be the issue?

#3 re#1. I was about to ask what the hell kind of vehicle it was to have a load that big.

#4 Perhaps a new angle for 'Stoning of the Devil'.
