Defence officials say the Air Force is investigating about a dozen airmen at a nuclear missile base for alleged use of illegal drugs.

The airmen are mainly or entirely members of a security force at the 90th Missile Wing, at FE Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming, the officials said.

Officials said those under investigation have been suspended from their duties while their cases are being investigated.

The Air Force is expected to officially announce the investigation later.
