KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Customs Agency on Thursday appealed to 19 individuals to collect urns containing the remains of their loved ones that have been left at the island's two main international airports, some for as long as three years.

In other news, the People's National Party on Tuesday launched a crowd funding campaign and called on members to provide financial support by giving an average of $5,000 per month.

And, on the crime scene, a policewoman and her two daughters were shot and injured in a brazen attack, which lawmen are theorising was a reprisal for the fatal shooting of a wanted man by the police in the area earlier that day.
