Customs staff in Germany intercepted a package at Leipzig airport that was heading for the Vatican, with the parcel from somewhere in South America containing 14 condoms that had been pumped full of liquid cocaine. With a value of around £33,000, someone was planning quite the party.
The mystery as to who the XL party pack was supposed to be picked up by is unlikely to be solved. Investigators believe the recipient was tipped off about the interception, so has not bothered popping into the local post office to pick it up. [Guardian]
