Corporate Area under curfew

While Kingston and St Andrew remain under a limited state of emergency, a curfew was imposed on sections of the Corporate Area last night.
The curfew, which began at 6 p.m. yesterday and ended at 6 a.m this morning, ran north along Nathan to Seventh streets; to Asquith Street and Studley Road; west along Maxfield Avenue from Spanish Town Road to Nathan Street.

The curfew extended south along Spanish Town Road from Maxfield Avenue to Industrial Terrace; from Marcus Garvey Drive to Port Royal Street and east along Slipe Pen Road and Princess Street.

Kingston and St Andrew was placed under a limited state of emergency last week following an upsurge of violence which saw attacks on the security forces and police stations.
