French customs have seized cocaine with a street value of eight million euros (10 million dollars) in a suitcase on board a flight from Bogota to Paris, a minister said Friday.

The 134-kilogram (294-pounds) haul of cocaine was intercepted Sunday at Paris' main Roissy international airport, when police ordered a search of the plane's luggage hold, said Budget Minister Francois Baroin.

It was the largest shipment of the drug ever seized at the airport, he said.
