Police have arrested 14 suspects for “trying to smuggle cocaine” through Ethiopia’s main airport in the capital, Addis Ababa.
Ethiopian federal police said the suspects, 13 Nigerians and one Brazilian, were found with 14kg of cocaine concealed in their luggage, underwear and had even swallowed some of it.
The suspects had arrived from São Paulo, Brazil, on Monday.
They were detained at the airport, according to Narcotics Operations Commander Mengisteab Beyene.
Ethiopian police say they have seized 39kg of cocaine and 36kg of cannabis over the past three months.
