Man arrested at Athens airport for drug smuggling


A 24-year-old Polish man was detained on drug-smuggling charges at Athens International Airport on Tuesday after officers established that he had swallowed half a kilogram of cocaine.

The suspect, who flew into Athens from Brussels, was found to have 50 small parcels of the drug in his stomach weighing a total of 566 grams.

The 24-year-old was to face an investigating magistrate later in the day.
