The World

The Colombian property of reputed drug baron Carlos Lehder, 37, now accused in a U.S. court of running the world's largest cocaine ring, has been put on sale to repay debts, his attorney in Bogota said. Nelson Mejia Vargas, legal representative of Cebu Quindio Corp., said the sale of the company's assets has been approved by the board of directors--Lehder, who is the majority stockholder, and his three brothers. The corporation controls numerous landholdings and other assets in Lehder's native Quindio province--part of a total fortune estimated at some $270 million.
