The Myanmar Times - - World -

Colom­bian police have ar­rested 22 sus­pected mem­bers of the coun­try’s top drug gang, ac­cused of traf­fick­ing co­caine to the United States and Europe. The sus­pects of the Clan del Golfo gang in­clude two of its se­nior lead­ers ac­cused of or­gan­is­ing killings, traf­fick­ing and extortion, police said, adding the two were sus­pected of traf­fick­ing drugs to Cen­tral Amer­ica, the United States, Bri­tain, Spain, Italy and the Nether­lands. The ar­rests foiled a plan to ex­pand the gang’s traf­fick­ing ac­tiv­ity to Rus­sia. Police say they have ar­rested more than 900 mem­bers of the Clan del Golfo over the past two years.
