      Cape Town - A hundred condoms, believed to be filled with cocaine, were
      found in the stomach of a Peruvian woman at Cape Town International
      Airport on Thursday morning.

      Inspector Bernadine Steyn of Western Cape police said customs officials
      and ports-of-entry police stopped the 23-year-old woman at 09:40 - after
      identifying her as a possible drugs trafficker.

      "She was taken to a hospital for examination and it was found that she
      had about 100 condoms in her stomach containing a substance, possibly
      cocaine," said Steyn.

      The woman was now under police guard in a local hospital, she said.
