Gilberto Rodríguez Orejuela dies in US jail

Gilberto Rodríguez Orejuela, an elderly leader of the former Cali cartel that smuggled vast amounts of cocaine from Colombia to the US in the 1980s and 1990s, has died in a U.S. prison. With his brother Miguel, they created a drug empire that at it's height controlled 70% of the cocaine that entered the United States.
