Jamaica's deadly hunt for drug lord

Residents brace for more violence as the authorities continue search for drug lord wanted by US.

    Dozens of people have been killed in the poorest neighbourhoods of the Jamaican capital as violence raged on following a manhunt for a suspected drug lord.

    Jamaican authorities continued to search for Christopher "Dudus" Coke, who faces extradition to the US on charges of drug trafficking and gun running.

    Fierce fighting entered a third day as thousands of police and soldiers faced off with gunmen protecting Coke.
