State of emergency declared in Trinidad following a weekend of violence.

Quote

Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar has declared a limited State of Emergency in hot spots across the country.

The decision was made "after much deliberation with the National Security Council and members of the Cabinet" in response to the "spate of murders over the past few days".

TROUBLE ZONES

Arima, Arouca, Beetham, Carenage, Cunupia, Diego Martin, Enterprise, Felicity, Gasparillo, Grand Couva, Hermitage, Icacos, Laventille, Maloney, Morvant, Sea Lots, Trincity, Pigeon Point, Crown Point.

The PM's statement:

The entire nation has been rocked with the recent tragic news of the spate of murders over the past few days. The situation has reached proportions which the government must respond to in the most definitive manner possible. I am advised that one of the causations for the spike in murders is ironically linked to the success by the police in the discovery of large drug hauls with values in excess of twenty million dollars.

A report on the Grenada Cruisers facebook page from someone in Chagauramas says things seem quiet and secure in Chaguaramas.

Bother I was planning to go there to get my topsides painted soon.

Ah well lotus eating in Grenada will continue for a while.
