Moroccan woman caught trying to smuggle man in suitcase into Spain

The Spanish Civil Guard recently arrested a 22-year-old Moroccan woman, who was attempting to smuggle a 19-year-old man across the border.

It happened on December 30, when border guards noticed that the woman was "acting suspiciously" while waiting in line to cross the border into the Spanish North African enclave of Ceuta, accompanied by a large suitcase. 
Due to her evident nervousness, the guards opened the suitcase to find a man, thought to be a Gabon citizen, curled up inside. He was reportedly moments away from suffocation in the airless suitcase and was carrying no passport or other identifying documents.
Spanish Civil Guard officers took the woman into custody.
