Colombian drugs traffickers have taken advantage of one of the world's poorest countries and turned it into the main transit point for hundreds of tons of cocaine smuggled into Europe every year.


Reporter Kate Seelye and producer Ed Watts report from Guinea Bissau in West Africa, and reveals the astonishing extent to which Colombian drugs traffickers have taken advantage of one of the world's poorest countries and turned it into the main transit point for hundreds of tons of cocaine smuggled into Europe every year.


With chronic poverty, rampant corruption and almost no police or customs, the Colombians have “bought" the country, flooding it with drugs money and creating Africa's first "narco-state".
