Listen to article

The two British school girls awaiting sentencing after being convicted of attempting to smuggle cocaine out of Ghana and possessing illicit drugs without lawful authority are reported to be on hunger strike in prison.

The two teenagers, both aged 16, are refusing to eat meals at the jail, according to a report carried by Ghanaweb.

The two, who claimed during trial that they were innocent dupes of drugs barons, are due to be sentenced on December, 5, 2007 and face up to three years in a Borstal.

The girls, students at an art college near their homes in Islington, North London, are already being treated for malaria.
