Cali talks

Top Colombian legal officials and lawyers for two suspected drug traffickers are holding talks which could lead to a surrender of drug lords belonging to the Cali cocaine cartel, Reuter reports from Bogota.

Since police shot dead the fugitive drug baron Pablo Escobar in Medellin this month, speculation has grown that the Cali traffickers, said to be the major players in the world cocaine trade, will surrender rather than face a similar fate.
