Hundreds of tourists yesterday joined Rastafarian priests and reggae musicians at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston to mark the 68th anniversary of the late reggae icon's birth. Some of Marley's relatives and old friends danced and chanted to the pounding of drums in the yard of the museum, his former home. Marley died from cancer in 1981 but his popularity remains strong across the globe, and his music continues to sell steadily. See related story on Page 21. (Photo: Joseph Wellington)
