Britons held in $50m drug bust

Three Britons have been arrested in Colombia as they allegedly tried to smuggle out $50m (pounds 33m) of cocaine, officials said at the weekend. Michael Hayne, his son Alan and a third man, David Maurice Shaw, were seized by agents of the DAS security service on the quay in Barranquilla. A DAS spokesman alleged 427lb of high-purity cocaine was found aboard their US-registered boat.
