Guyana: Guyana seeks US help to fight drug trafficking at airport

Guyana is asking the U.S. government for help in cracking down on drug smuggling at the South American country's main airport.  U.S. Ambassador Perry Holloway says talks are ongoing with Guyana officials to loan special drug-detecting equipment.  The cooperation comes as administrators at Cheddi Jagan International Airport crack down on bag handlers and check-in clerks accused of helping drug smugglers. Many have been fired.  This comes after the notable case of Roger Levans, who was wrongfully arrested by customs on cocaine smuggling charges after arriving in New York from Guyana on a Delta Airways flight.  Levans was a victim of baggage tampering by handlers who were subsequently arrested after a customs investigation in 2011.
