Narcotics officers in Ghana Arrest 16-year-old London Girls
Two British teenage girls charged in Ghana with carrying cocaine worth £300,000 have claimed they were "set up" to carry the drugs back to England.
Yasemin Vatansever, 16, the London-born daughter of immigrants from Cyprus, and Yatunde Diya, 16, also a British citizen of Nigerian descent, are facing at least ten years in jail if convicted.
The girls were arrested at Accra Airport on July 2 as they tried to board a British Airways flight to the UK capital and later appeared in a juvenile court on drugs charges.
They had told their parents they were going on a school trip to France.
