ICI pulls out of cocaine war [Colombia]
Author: Antony Barnett and Solomon Hughes, Observer [UK], Published on: 1 July 2001
ICI [British chemicals company] has pulled out of the controversial US project to spray vast areas of Colombia with herbicides in an attempt to eradicate its cocaine and heroin trade. ICI does not want its name dragged into such a programme, particularly as there have been reports of children in Colombia who have inhaled the chemicals falling ill.
