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.
