UK woman may face death in Indonesia for drugs

- +

A British woman could face the death penalty in Indonesia after being arrested for allegedly smuggling crystal methamphetamine into the country from China, an official said Saturday. 

The woman, identified only by her initials AR, was arrested at a hotel in the city of Surabaya, East Java province, last month with 1.47 kilogrammes of the drug, the national narcotics agency said.

"Because she smuggled drugs weighing more than five grammes, she could face the death penalty," agency spokesman Sumirat Dwiyanto told AFP.
