Bahrain: Man caught with heroin-filled capsules in stomach

A 30-year-old man who swallowed 114 capsules stuffed with heroin to smuggle the drugs into Bahrain will spend 15 years of his life in jail. The Fourth High Criminal Court also slapped him with a fine of BD10,000 and ordered his deportation after finishing his jail terms.

The suspect reportedly concealed the drugs in his stomach with the help of medical staff while he was on his way to the Kingdom. He was given laxatives to recover the 858.2 grams of drugs from his stomach.

The man, an Asian national, was arrested at the Bahrain International Airport when customs officers grew suspicious of his unusual behavior.
