Spanish police find cocaine in man’s luggage at Seville airport en route to Tokyo summit

Spanish police have arrested a soldier travelling with the Brazilian president’s advance party for the G20 summit in Japan after 39kg of cocaine was discovered in his luggage during a stopover in Seville.

A spokesman for the Guardia Civil said the man was arrested on Tuesday after his plane landed at the Andalucían airport.

Formed in 1999, the G20 is a group featuring 19 of the world's largest economic powers and the European Union. It was formed in the wake of financial crises in the late 90s, with a view to providing some governance for the global economy. Since 2008 it has held an annual leaders' summit.
