A British woman has been sentenced to death by a Bali court after smuggling over $2.5 million worth of cocaine onto the island in the lining of her suitcase[2]. 56-year-old Lindsay Sandiford was arrested at the airport in May 2012, following a routine customs check that uncovered over 10.6 pounds of cocaine.[3] She is accused of being at the center of a drug ring involving three other British nationals.
