Nairobi - A Spanish national was arrested on drugs charges on his arrival at Nairobi's airport with 10.4kg of cocaine in his baggage, Kenyan police said on Monday.

Police said the man, aged 52, was arrested on Saturday.

"His luggage was found with 10.4kg of cocaine," the airport's criminal investigations chief Joseph Ngisa said.

The Spaniard, who flew in from Sao Paolo, is expected to be arraigned in court later on Monday. It was not clear if Nairobi was his final destination or whether he was arrested whilst in transit.
