Police in Peru say they have seized $2.3m (£1.5m) in counterfeit notes.

They say the notorious Quispe Rodriguez family clan is behind the production of fake currency.

Peruvian police chief, Raul Salazar, said the gang was planning to smuggle the counterfeit $50 bills into the United States, hidden inside Peruvian souvenirs.
