Three days of gang killings in Kingston prompted soldiers to sweep into the area to contain the violence Nov. 18. A 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. curfew was imposed in the communities of Matthew’s Lane and Tel Aviv, and traffic and public transit were diverted from the areas. Such violence is common in the capital, usually in the area of West Kingston, but it seldom affects the main tourist areas of Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril, or interior districts.
