A British gran who claimed she and her husband were tricked into smuggling cocaine reportedly said she is afraid of dying behind bars as she awaits her cancer results.
Susan Clarke, 71, has been in a maximum-security jail since September after she and husband Roger, 72, were slapped with an eight-year sentence.
The pair say they were conned by criminals into carrying suitcases with cocaine hidden in the lining.
Clarke, who this month lost an appeal against her conviction, told the Sunday Mirror she fears she has cancer after discovering a lump in her breast recently. She is awaiting the results of a double biopsy on her left breast, the paper added.
"My health is terrible," the grandmother of eight was quoted as saying.

"I may never get out of here alive and there's no way I can reduce my sentence now. We were made an example of but I've been handed a death sentence.
"My worry is that I'll never be free and I'll be leaving here in a box."
The couple, originally from Chatham, Kent, was arrested on a cruise ship when investigators searched four suitcases they had with them.
Roger Clarke said he'd been given the cases to take back to the UK by a businessman friend, who said they contained exclusive goods which could be sold at Harrods for a substantial profit.
