Accused drug smuggler 'didn't know'

THE British woman caught attempting to smuggle more than $A2.5 million worth of cocaine into Bali insists she did not know she had drugs in her suitcase.

In an interview with the Daily Mail Lindsay Sandiford, who could be facing the death penalty, said she agreed to carry the suitcase into the country because drug dealers were threatening to kill her youngest son Elliot, 21.

"I knew what they were asking me to do was something dodgy," she told the paper.

"They weren't asking me to bring in tulips or balls of cheese but I didn't know if it was money, gold, jewellery, guns, marijuana or heroin. I had no idea."
