KINGSTON, Jamaica — Murders are up 19 per cent with this year's murder figures are at 632 up to Tuesday, June 13, which has resulted in Prime Minister Andrew Holness vowing that his administration will tackle crime decisively and are open to help with the fight.

Meanwhile, several shops at the Redemption Ground Market on West Queen Street, and LP Azar's warehouse on Princess Street, both in downtown Kingston, were on Tuesday gutted in separate fires.

In sport, Usain Bolt, who ran his final race on Jamaican soil Saturday, will star in the Pro Evolution Soccer this year, exclusively to those who pre-order the video game.
