Mexico announced that it will extradite a West German woman charged in the United States with smuggling 6.6 tons of cocaine in the early 1980s. A Foreign Ministry spokesman said Veronica Kiera-Wahl, who has been jailed in the southern Mexican state of Yucatan since last year, will be handed over to U.S. authorities in the next few days. Kiera-Wahl had allegedly smuggled cocaine from Colombia for six months until September, 1982. Extradition proceedings were started last September, and Kiera-Wahl will face trial in a northern district court in Georgia.
