Photo detail

Anti-Narcotics police keep guard in a coca field as a plane fumigates the crop close to Tumaco, about 360 miles southwest of Bogota, Colombia in this Sept. 12, 2000 file photo. Authorities suspect a new threat is lurking in the mountains and jungles of Colombia: Not a new rebel cadre, but genetically altered coca plants that may be taller, bushier and faster-growing than the regular kind _ and possibly more resistant to herbicides.
