A UK national has been charged in Kenya with trafficking nearly 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of cocaine seized last week at the country’s main seaport.
Jack Alexander Wolf Marrian denied the charge in court. The prosecution opposed bail, saying he was a flight risk. The court will rule on the bail application on Monday.
Kenyan police and US Drug Enforcement Agency officials seized the cocaine last week in the coastal city of Mombasa.
It was apparently hidden in ship containers, supposedly carrying sugar from Brazil to Uganda.
