Indonesian police on the resort island of Bali say they arrested a Danish woman who allegedly swallowed 23 capsules of hashish and a second suspect identified as a 38-year-old French.

Colonel Mulyadi said Monday that the 37-year-old Dane was taken to the hospital last week soon after arriving at the Bali airport. He said doctors found 218 grams of hashish in 23 capsules in her stomach.

Mulyadi said the woman led them to the second suspect he identified as a Frenchwoman who allegedly carried 2.01 grams of hashish.

The predominantly Muslim nation of 237 million people has extremely strict drug laws and traffickers are regularly sentenced to death.
