Pirated discs seized

World Brief

A South African Revenue Services raid on a warehouse in Johannesburg Friday led to the seizure of counterfeit DVDs and CDs — most of them Bollywood movies — valued at $8 million.

SARS spokesman Sechaba Nkosi said the material found was enough to fill two large trucks.

“It’s one of our biggest busts ever involving DVDs and CDs,” Nkosi said.
