VTV.vn - A Senegalese man was arrested at HCMC's Tan Son Nhat International Airport with 1.6 kg of compressed cocaine in his digestive system.

Following his arrival on a flight from Thailand, customs officers and anti-drug police forces on duty at the airport spotted the 39-year-old man acting suspiciously last Saturday.

Initial investigations show that he flew from Nigeria to Ethiopia, and then transited through Thailand before arriving in Vietnam. He is believed to have swallowed the cocaine pellets and passed security screenings in all three countries before being caught at Tan Son Nhat. Customs officers are cooperating with the Ministry of Public Security in investigating the case further.
