Jamaican Gangs Storm Kingston

Every little thing is not all right in Kingston: Local authorities declared a state of emergency Sunday, after gangs blockaded a large portion of the Jamaican capital. "The possibility exists for violence and/or civil unrest in the greater Kingston metropolitan area," the alert said. "If the situation ignites, there is a possibility of severe disruptions of movement within Kingston, including blocking of access roads to the Norman Manley International Airport.” At least two police stations have been attacked so far, and the British and U.S. embassies are taking extra precautions and warning travelers of higher risk.
