A Kenya Airways flight attendant is alleged to have been carrying the biggest consignment of heroin ever found at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta Airport when she was arrested Monday.

A report in the East African Standard said the woman, who has not been named, had 27.8 kilograms of the drug in her possession when she was stopped by customs officials.

The attendant, who traveled on a Kenya Airways flight from Mumbai, India to Nairobi, is understood to have been on leave.

According to the newspaper, a police source said the woman was meeting a male contact at the airport but was stopped before she could transfer the heroin. The man escaped.
