Indonesian Court Sentences British Woman to Death

(Reuters) - An Indonesian court sentenced a middle-aged British woman to death on Tuesday for smuggling cocaine worth more than $2.5 million into the resort island of Bali.

Lindsay Sandiford, 56, was found guilty of smuggling 4.8 kg (11 lbs) of the drug hidden in the lining of her suitcase on a flight from Bangkok in May.

Sandiford, who was accompanied by a translator, covered her face several times with a head scarf as she listened to the verdict being read out.
