For those who don't follow Dutch (.nl) media:

on 14th January, the 3 crew members from MP-6912 = Martinair 747-400F PH-CKA have been arrested at EZE - Buenos Aires, Argentina, after 80 kgs cocaine were found in the cargo hold from their aircraft. Scheduled routing MP-6912 was Campinas (Brazil) -> Buenos Aires (Argentina) -> Quito (Ecuador) -> (Amsterdam (NL). The drugs were hidden inside electronic devices, and were found during a massive police raid on aircraft on the tarmac, obviously after police was informed about the transport.

So far KLM - Martinair's mother company - refuses to comment.

Thanks for the heads-up Passenger! I was able to write the following story: https://www.aviation24.be/airports/buen ... martinair/

Note that the crew possibly wasn't aware of the transport.

On 15 January, Hugo C., a Belgian citizen aged 54 bound for Madrid, Spain was arrested at Lima’s international airport in Peru. He got caught carrying 20 live birds – all protected species – hidden in his suitcase, which he intended to sell in Spain, the National Forest and Wildlife Service (Serfor) reported on Wednesday.

Three major U.S. airports will screen passengers from a city in China where a mysterious respiratory virus has sickened dozens.

Airports in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles will begin screening passengers arriving from Wuhan, China, for infection with a mysterious respiratory virus that has killed two people and sickened at least 45 overseas, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced.
