Peruvian police arrested nine people, including five locals and one Estonian citizen, in operations in three towns.

Around half a ton of cocaine was found in one of the operations, packaged as soybeans and meant to be transported to Europe, local news outlet peru21 reported, adding that the figure is not final and could increase.

The Estonian ambassador to Brazil and the region, Mart Tarmak, told ETV there is little information available currently as the investigation is still taking place, but there has been contact with the Estonian authorities.

Two young Estonian women were arrested in October 2013 in Cusco on drug trafficking charges. In that case, the women were allegedly unaware that what they carried was illegal drugs.
