NUKULOFA, Tonga, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Police in Tonga say they have discovered a decomposing body and $120 million worth of cocaine on a yacht that ran aground near the capital Nukulofa.

Police from several countries had been tracking the boat since it left Ecuador in August, Radio Australia reported Friday.

Some 204 one-kilo blocks of cocaine police believe were destined for Australia were found aboard the 42-foot vessel JeReVe.
