Dozens of people have been killed in the poorest neighbourhoods of the Jamaican capital as violence raged on following a manhunt for a suspected drug lord.

Jamaican authorities continued to search for Christopher "Dudus" Coke, who faces extradition to the US on charges of drug trafficking and gun running.

Fierce fighting entered a third day as thousands of police and soldiers faced off with gunmen protecting Coke.
