Hanoi (VNA) – A Tanzanian man was arrested on Bali resort island of Indonesia after more than a kilogram of methamphetamine was found inside his stomach, said Indonesian authorities on February 12.

Indonesia immigration officials on Bali island said they nabbed Abdul Rahman Asman, 42, at the international airport on January 30.

An X-ray and CT scan turned up some 99 plastic bags filled with white powder that Asman had swallowed, topping a kilo in weight, authorities said.

It was not clear if prosecutors will seek the death penalty against Asman but Indonesia has some of the world's strictest drug laws, including execution for traffickers.

There are currently dozens of smugglers on death row in the country, including a British national, an American and several others from West African countries. –VNA
