Foreign model arrested at Hong Kong airport for smuggling cocaine

As Victoria's Secret models were strutting and tumbling on the catwalk in Shanghai, another model was doing a very different sort of walk in Hong Kong.
A 19-year-old female model from Greece was arrested at the Hong Kong airport with a 2.6kg pack of cocaine worth HK$2.4 million ($307,000) hidden in a false compartment in her backpack.

She had arrived on a flight from Ethiopia and was selected for a routine inspection.

Since last week four female visitors have been arrested by customs officers for carrying the drug.
