A Bulgarian carrying cocaine capsules in his stomach has died at a hospital where he was taken after being captured at the Salvador International Airport.

Earlier reports had suggested that the man was a Belgian national, but the information was rejected by the Belgian Foreign Ministry, which said in a statement that the detainee had dual (Bulgarian and US) citizenship.

The drug mule carrying capsules of cocaine in his stomach was busted by local anti-drug police.

In end-October 2011, former Bulgarian weightlifting champion Galabin Boevski was detained at the S?o Paulo airport in Brazil after police found 9 kg of cocaine in his luggage.

Boevski denied any involvement in a drug trafficking scheme and claimed that he had bought three new suitcases in Brazil and did not know how the drugs had ended up there.

Charges were officially brought against Boevksi on December 14 and the first court hearing was scheduled for March 06.
