    Two British women arrested two weeks ago in Peru for drug trafficking offences say they still do not know if they will be charged.

    The pair say they were forced into carrying bags for an armed gang and that they did not know they contained cocaine.

    Peru is the world's largest producer of the drug and foreigners have a history of being targets of smugglers in the country.
