Trinidad and Tobago Declares a State of Emergency

Trinidad and Tobago has declared a “limited” state of emergency to combat drug-related violence.

The capital city and other cities are under a 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. curfew. Authorities are enforcing the curfew to curb a recent increase in murders.

Last weekend alone, there were eleven homicides, bringing the annual total to 264.
