Police have 'full command' after Coke arrest

Help

Jamaica's Information Minister Daryl Vaz has explained why he is confident the police will maintain security, following the arrest of suspected drugs lord Christopher "Dudus" Coke on the outskirts of the capital, Kingston.

More than 70 people were killed in gun battles between police and armed men during an operation to capture Mr Coke last month.

The government wants to extradite the 41-year-old to the US to face charges of drug and gun trafficking.

Mr Vaz said the police and military were in ''full command'' of Kingston's volatile areas.
