A British man, a Japanese and an Indonesian man have been arrested in Bali on suspicion of carrying drugs, customs officials said on Monday.

Customs officials at Ngurah Rai International Airport said they apprehended Japanese national Yuki Morita, 35, who had arrived in Bali on Sunday from India.

Scans of his luggage revealed 13 packs of cannabis totalling almost six kilograms, they said.

Morita had been planning to take the banned substance to Australia.

Meanwhile, British citizen Khuram Khan, 39, was arrested at the airport last Thursday, allegedly carrying 3.1 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine. And Indonesian Yan Santosa, 31, was apprehended by police later the same day for his alleged role in a drugs network, customs chief I Made Wijaya told a news conference.

The three are the latest in a long line of people arrested in Bali for drugs offences, three of whom, Australians, are on death row.
