Jamaica drug raid toll reaches 27

http://news-updations.blogspot.comAt least 27 people, almost all civilians, have died in the gun battles in Jamaica, police have said, that the hunt continues for a suspected drug lord.

Troops and police had stormed with the stronghold of Christopher "Dudus" Coke in the Tivoli Gardens district of the capital Kingston.

A state of emergency has been in place in all parts of Kingston since Friday, when several police stations were attacked.

A decision to extradite Mr Coke, 41, to the US had angered his supporters.

Mr Coke, who insists he is a legitimate businessman, enjoys the support of many impoverished Kingston residents who see him as a benefactor and have vowed to protect him at any cost.

But the US justice department accuses him of being one of the world's most dangerous drug barons.
