A 36-year-old man of foreign nationality was arrested at Lisbon airport on suspicion of drug trafficking, the Polícia Judiciária (PJ) force said on Monday.

A large quantity of cocaine was seized and transported from a South American country to Lisbon, the police said in a statement.

The seized drug, if it reached the market, would be enough for at least 11,000 individual doses, according to PJ.

The man who was arrested in the last few days was brought before the court, and is to await trial in custody.
