Eight Israelis in Colombia have denied suspicions of drug trafficking and money laundering, local media reported on Wednesday.

According to Colombian prosecutors, the men, residents of Tagangia, on the Caribbean coast, are also suspected of exploiting minors.

The prosecutors said the men were placed under surveillance over recent months after arousing the suspicions of law enforcement authorities before being arrested.

The Israelis said they are business investors and denied all links to criminal activities.
