Nine kilos of heroin intercepted at Athens International Airport

A 35-year-old Kenyan national traveling from Nairobi has been arrested at Athens International Airport after narcotics officers found 9.15 kilograms of heroin in his luggage.

The unnamed suspect’s luggage was searched after he landed at the Greek capital’s main airport. A photograph released by the Greek Police shows how narcotics officers found two large blocks of the drug hidden in pouches near the lining of the 35-year-old’s hold-all.

The suspect will face an Athens prosecutor on drug smuggling charges.
