The airport security thwarted on Saturday an attempt by a Lebanese passenger to smuggle drugs to Belgium, the National News Agency reported.
The NNA said that the 46-year-old man, who was identified by his initials as A. Z., was trying to smuggle 8 kilograms of heroin.
The drugs were hidden in a double-bottomed suitcase.
The suspect was arrested and referred to the counter-narcotics bureau for further investigations.
