Australian woman is freed after drug charges dropped


An Australian mother-of-six has walked free from a court in Malaysia after drug trafficking charges against her were unexpectedly dropped.

Emma Louise L'Aiguille, 34, from Melbourne, had been accused of possessing more than a kilogram of meth-amphetamine and faced a death sentence if found guilty.

She says she now just wants to see her children again.
