Jamaica cops attack drug lord's slum stronghold

In this photo taken Thursday, May 20, 2010, a demonstrator displays a cardboard with a message in support of Christopher "Dudus" Coke during a march in Kingston. Jamaican Police have an arrest warrant for "Dudus", who allegedly leads one of Jamaica's drug gangs and is sought by U.S. authorities on drug and arms trafficking charges but residents of West Kingston neighborhoods have set up barricades to prevent the police for entering the slums to execute the order.
