Weekly Round-up: SOE in western Ja… Mobile Reserve shutdown… Russell ready for World Cup

Friday, May 03, 2019

KINGSTON, Jamaica — Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Tuesday announced a state of emergency in St James, Westmoreland and Hanover.

Meanwhile, the leadership of the Jamaica Constabulary Force is now in crisis mode over the involvement of three policemen in the fatal shooting of a man at Chedwin Park, St Catherine on Sunday morning.

In sport, All-rounder Andre Russell in a report on Monday said there is a renewed hunger to represent West Indies in the upcoming World Cup, especially with his current batting form.

The 31-year-old has played only a single One-Day International in the last four years but was named in the Caribbean side's World Cup 15-man squad last week.
