Briton put on show with drugs haul in Bali

A British woman has been displayed at a press conference in Bali after allegedly being caught with £1.6 million of cocaine.

Custom officials say they stopped Lindsay Sandiford carrying the 4.7kg haul in a suitcase as she arrived in Bali on a Thai Airways flight from Bangkok on May 19.

Indonesia has extremely strict drug laws and executes convicted smugglers. A third of the more than 140 people on death row are foreigners.
