I'm Not 007: While reporting the story about Latin American nations curbing cooperation with the US drug fight, staff writer Sara Miller Llana was reminded of a recent trip to Bolivia.

She went to interview farmers from the Chapare region, where coca is legally grown. Coca is the main ingredient in cocaine, but it also has a cultural use in the Andean region – people chew it and drink it in tea.

"But one of the farmer's relatives had been killed during recent political riots. My story was a political one, but it took me about two hours to convince them that I was a journalist and not a spy for the US government," says Sara.
