The website closures and counterfeit drug seizures announced Thursday were part of a weeklong crackdown that was organized by the international police agency Interpol and ended Sunday. No arrests were made but the investigation is continuing, the AP reported.
A similar operation last year led to the closure of more than 18,000 illegal online pharmacies, the seizure of $10.5 million in medicines, and the arrests of about 80 people.
