A huge cocaine haul worth an estimated US $37m has been seized from a go-fast boat in the Caribbean, US authorities announced on Tuesday.

A US Coast Guard helicopter was launched from the UK's Royal Fleet Auxiliary Wave Knight to intercept the suspected drug smugglers on 22 January, south of the Dominican Republic.

Lieutenant Commander Gabe Somma, Coast Guard Public Affairs Officer, said that four suspects were arrested during the operation.
