Gangs have amassed weapons and erected street barricades in the Jamaican capital to protest the extradition of Christopher "Dudus" Coke.

Gangs have amassed weapons and erected street barricades in the Jamaican capital to protest the extradition of a reputed gang leader, police said, as the United States warned travelers of possible civil unrest.
Kingston police Friday called on residents of Tivoli Gardens and Denham Town to dismantle the barricades they erected during a massive demonstration Thursday in support of Christopher "Dudus" Coke.
They also said that criminal gangs have stockpiled a large cache of weapons in the area, including big-gauge rifles, all apparently to protect Coke and stop his extradition to the United States on drug and gun trafficking charges that could put him away for life.
Coke, 42, is the reputed leader of the Shower Posse gang with branches all over the United States, and also heads the Tivoli Gardens community, which Prime Minister Bruce Golding represents in the Jamaican Parliament.
The United States accuses Shower Posse members, under Coke's direction, of having sold marijuana and crack cocaine in New York City and other areas of the United States, funneling profits back to him.
