Jamaica: State of Emergency in Kingston
The Jamaican Government has declared a state of emergency in parts of the capital Kingston in response to localised unrest, including attacks on police stations in West Kingston and St Andrews districts. The security situation could deteriorate with little or no notice, including in other parts of Kingston and possibly other urban areas in Jamaica.
New Zealanders currently in Jamaica are advised to avoid affected inner-city areas of Kingston, listen to local media for updates on the situation and follow any restrictions or instructions issued by the local authorities.
