Mexico has extradited five Dutch nationals, including three women, convicted on drug charges between 2000 and 2006, the attorney general's office said Wednesday.

Three of those extradited were arrested in the Mexico City airport as they tried to smuggle 23 kilograms of amphetamines into the country, it said.

The others had been arrested for possession of cocaine or marijuana, it said.
