Caribbean becoming 'new drug route'

Al Jazeera "Caribbean leaders have urged the US to do more to stop the trafficking of drugs to island nations, saying support for a crackdown on cartels in Mexico has forced smugglers to find new routes through the region.

The comments came during a regional security conference in Barbados attended by the US defence secretary, Robert Gates.

During the meeting David Thompson, the prime minister of Barbados, said all Caribbean nations saw drug smuggling as 'a threat to our individual, national and regional well-being'."
