KINGSTON, Jamaica — Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Wednesday broke ground at the Cornwall Regional Hospital for the construction of the US$43-million Western Children and Adolescents Hospital.

Meanwhile, the police on Thursday arrested George Malcolm, the man believed to have been driving a taxi which mowed down two pedestrians on Eastwood Park Road in St Andrew a day earlier.
