Customs officers at the international airport in Prague have detained a Romanian passenger smuggling 600,000 crowns worth of heroin in his stomach. Suspicious behaviour on the part of the passenger, who had arrived from Istanbul, led the officers to perform tests. X-rays showed that the man had 35 capsules of heroin inside him, each containing roughly ten grams of heroin. The vast majority of such cases of drug smuggling involve cocaine rather than heroin, customs said.
