Hooked - Part 1

  • Published

Known as Africa's first narco-state, Guinea-Bissau has been a key hub in the international drugs trade for nearly a decade. Hit by military coups and poverty, it's used by South American drug cartels as a route to smuggle cocaine to Europe.

Hooked is a five-part report in graphic novel style of the human impact of that trade. It explores difficult themes of drug taking.
