Colombia sells assets seized from drug lords

Narcotics agency auctions $40m worth of jewelry, real estate, and art seized from drug traffickers.

    Colombia's national narcotics agency is running an auction of property that once belonged to drug lords, including jewelry, real estate, and art.

    Together all the items are worth more than $40m, but that figure could have been much higher as many precious pieces have been stolen or sold illegally.
