Santo Domingo - A woman arriving from Belgium was arrested at an airport in the Dominican Republic with €55 500 hidden in her stomach and €54 600 in her luggage, anti-drugs police said on Sunday.

The 40-year-old, a Spanish national of Dominican origin, was snared at the international airport in Punta Cana after flying in from Brussels, the National Drug Control Office (DNCD) said.

Intelligence services were warned about the woman's arrival and the cash in her stomach, contained in 16 bags was confirmed by X-ray.

The total sum of Euros is the equivalent of about $140 000; travellers are allowed to bring in a maximum of $10 000 without reporting it.
