Drug gangs using young women to smuggle drugs into United Kingdom

Drug gangs in UK are using now a different way to smuggle cocaine. Now they are hiring young women called "drug mules" to bring in the drugs from Africa.
In recent months, there are lots of incidents where British girls in their teens are caught with drugs at the airports in UK or African countries. It has been generally seen that young women had been groomed as smugglers and are lured with holidays, expensive meals, clothes and jewelry by London travel agents to bring drugs in return of the favor.

As the drugs gangs arrange them with everything and as the girls are asked to return with a package without telling them about the substance it has, authorities are finding it difficult to prove a conspiracy and arrest the culprits. However, it has led many of the innocent girls behind the bars.

Some of the girls who had been lured and later forced to carry the drugs are merely the tip of the iceberg and problem perhaps is bigger than we could anticipate.
