A notorious Jamaican drug lord has been jailed for 23 years in the US.

Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke was captured in 2010 after a large-scale police operation in Kingston left more than 70 people dead.

Jamaica’s prime minister initially fought his extradition to America.

Coke led a crime ring that distributed drugs throughout the world.
