JAKARTA, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia's national narcotics agency BNN has arrested three foreigners suspected to have trafficked cocaine on the country's resort island of Bali.

The suspects are Brazilian, British and Mexican nationals. They were arrested in three separate operations on Thursday.

The BNN Bali office believed the suspects were the largest cocaine supplier in Canggu, North Kuta and Seminyak, which are mixed tourist/ residential areas in the resort island.

BNN Bali chief Gde Sugianyar Dwi Putra told a press conference on Friday that the agency managed to arrest the three people with the cooperation of immigration and customs officers.

"All suspects test positive (for cocaine). So apart from distributing drugs, they are also the users," he said.

Putra said an investigation has been launched into the drug network linked to the suspects.
