Three members of Venezuela's National Guard have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the smuggling of a massive haul of cocaine on an Air France flight from Caracas to Paris.

Venezuelan Interior Minister Miguel Rodriguez said he expected more arrests would be made over the coming days.

The seizure was one of the biggest ever to be made on French territory.
