إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Customs agents at Beirut's Rafik Hariri International Airport thwarted at dawn Monday an attempt to smuggle several kilograms of cocaine into Lebanon from Brazil, the state-run National News Agency reported.

NNA said a 37-year-old Brazilian was arrested after the agents found 6 kilos of the drugs stashed "professionally" in a briefcase with a double bottom.

The suspect, who was only identified by his initials J.B., had come to Beirut from Brazil via Ethiopia, the agency said.

He was questioned at the airport before being referred to Beirut's Central Drug Control Office for further investigation.

Media reports said the man was on a wheelchair. But it was not clear if he was paralyzed or faking his paralysis.

Probably an Al Qaeda sympathizer trying to smuggle cocaine to help fund the FSA-Al Qaeda terrorists.
