A CURFEW IS IMPOSED IN ST. CATHERINE, SOUTH!

 The police this evening imposed a curfew in sections of Central Village in St Catherine.—

The curfew began at 6:00 pm and will remain in effect until 6:00 pm on Thursday, the police say. The curfew comes on heels of one that was imposed in other sections of the parish last Thursday after Prime Minister Andrew Holness announced a state of emergency in St James.

National Security Minister Robert Montague told Parliament this afternoon that as criminal elements flee St James to neighboring parishes in light of the state of emergency, operations are being conducted across the country to apprehend wanted men.

He said so far, 18 people were detained in St Catherine North and one in St Catherine South. The boundaries of the curfew are as follows:
