Spanish police have arrested a Panamanian woman who landed in Barcelona from Colombia with cocaine stuffed inside her breast implants.
The woman was taken to the police at the airport after her vague answers to questions about the reasons for her trip from Bogota raised suspicion at the border control, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
When border police discovered fresh scars and blood-stained gauze on the woman's chest, she was taken to a nearby hospital to check her claim that she had recently undergone breast implant surgery.
The implants were found to carry 1.38 kg of cocaine.
The Pentagon has suspended security clearances of military personnel implicated in the Colombia prostitution scandal, pending the results of the investigation, Defence Secretary Leon Panetta has said.
US Secret Service and military personnel allegedly took as many as 21 women back to their hotel, ahead of President Barack Obama's trip to the seaside city of Cartagena to attend the Summit of the Americas.
They were discovered when one woman complained about money, leading to the involvement of the local police.
