A 20-year-old Irish man traveling from Brazil to Brussels was arrested last week after he was allegedly found to be carrying 72 bags of cocaine in his stomach at an airport in Brazil, according to the Irish Independent.

The man, whose nervous behavior tipped off police according to the report, has been charged with international drug trafficking. In total, the cocaine amounted to nearly one kilo, the story says.
