(dpa) - Greek custom officials seized a shipment of supplements containing anabolic steroids from Thailand on Monday amid a doping scandal that has shaken the country's weightlifting federation.

Reports said officers seized more than 90,000 pills at an Athens post office after it was discovered that they would pass into Greece from Thailand via France.

The Greek weightlifting federation has been rocked by a doping scandal after 11 of its athletes tested positive for using banned substances on April 4. The results of a second test are expected this week.
