Practical uses for the burka (1): drug smuggling

This is incredible.

Eight women dressed in burkas have been nabbed at Jakarta Sukarno Hatta airport for trying to bring in £7.5m worth of drugs into the country!

The group of drug smugglers were found with 27kg of crystal methamphetamine at Indonesia’s Soekarno-Hatta airport.

They also had 23 litres of the drug in liquid form, said customs chief Anwar Suprijadi

The drugs, wrapped in plastic food containers and cleaning fluid bottles, were packed into hand luggage. But the oddly-shaped packages were picked out by officers operating scanners.

By wearing conservative Islamic clothing the women tried to 'fool officers in a country like Indonesia, where women in black veils are generally considered to be good women', the customs chief explained.
