An Austrian woman has been charged after allegedly swallowing almost 1kg of cocaine held in 124 pellets before travelling to Australia.

The 27-year-old woman is the third person charged in Australia in two months for allegedly importing drugs concealed internally.

During the woman’s long flight to Perth from Europe, she is alleged to have excreted and re-swallowed eight of the pellets, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and Australian Border Force (ABF) said in a joint statement.
