Why Guinea Bissau's President Killed Its Army Chief

Planes lined to Mexican drug cartels land. Seized cocaine disappeared. Interpol is frustrated. Guinea Bissau: A bomb, private jets and cocaine: by Marco Vernaschi details this and more.

For flavor:

Genetral Tagme Na Wai was killed by a sophisticated bomb, made in Thailand, the kind of device you need to buy outside of Guinea-Bissau; outside most of Africa, in fact, an indication of foreign involvement. It’s not clear who was flying on this jet. Planes are often used to smuggle cocaine to Europe but they usually don’t land at the main airport.
