    Police in the United States have made a record-breaking seizure of an illegal drug - with enough doses to kill millions of people.

    Fentanyl worth $20m was found hidden in a truck during a routine traffic stop in Nebraska.

    The synthetic drug is up to 50 times more potent than heroin.

    Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports.
