A 13-year-old girl has been arrested at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport after she was found to be carrying around 100 grammes of cocaine in her body cavities, website nu.nl reported on Friday.

A military police spokesman told the website she is the youngest person arrested at the airport for drug smuggling.

The girl was travelling from the Caribbean with an 18-year-old youth, nu.nl said. The youth was not carrying drugs and was released after questioning.

The girl was picked out during a so-called 100% control of all passengers on her flight. According to the Telegraaf she came from Curacao and has now been placed under the control of social services.
