ATHENS — The Attica Security drugs squad on Monday arrested a 39-year-old Lithuainian woman at "Eleftherios Venizelos" international airport after she was caught smuggling 345 grammes of cocaine into the country, in the form of 48 makeshift packages that she had swallowed.

The arrest was part of an operation to prevent the import of drugs from Latin American countries into Greece. The woman was arrested on her arrival from Sao Paolo in Brazil and led before an Athens public prosecutor.


ATHENS - The tragic death of a 22-year-old British tourist killed when hit by a helicopter blade after he just got off is seen likely to change safety measures for such flights in Greece that have become more popular.
