Two nephews of Venezuela’s first lady have been sentenced to 18 years in prison in the US after being convicted of trafficking drugs.

Franqui Francisco Flores de Freitas and Efrain Antonio Campo Flores were accused of conspiring to smuggle 1,700 pounds (800kg) of cocaine into the United States.

The men are the nephews of Cilia Flores, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s wife.

The two were arrested in Haiti in 2015.
