Reputed Drug Lord Coke Captured In Jamaica

Jamaican authorities have released this undated photo of Christopher "Dudus" Coke.
Jamaican police say they have captured alleged drug kingpin Christopher "Dudus" Coke on the outskirts of Kingston.

Coke is wanted for extradition to the United States to face drug- and arms-trafficking charges.

At least 73 people were killed when Jamaican security forces stormed a Kingston slum during an attempt to capture him last month, prompting authorities to declare a state of emergency.
