The Southern Division continues to lead the nine policing districts in the number of firearms seized with 163 illegal weapons found this year. This number is eight more than the number of firearms seized for the same period last year. The division, which is led by Snr Sup Mohammed, is continuing its anti-crime initiatives to reduce reports of serious crime in the district. These initiatives have resulted in the detention of suspects mere minutes after robberies were reported in the district this week. As a result, Mohammed, as well as other officers of the Southern Division, are calling on the public to continue to work with the police service, noting that it was only through this continued collaboration could crime be combatted in this country. More on this as it becomes available.

Ten persons are currently in custody following police exercises in the Western Division. The exercises were conducted by officers of the Western Division Task Force, the Western Division CID, the K9 Unit, and the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment. They took place between 2:00 am and 9:00 am on Thursday and was led by Sup Dominque, Inspector Vincent, and Sgt Arneaud, among several others. The suspects were detained in relation to inquiries into reports of shootings in the Cocorite area recently. The incidents are said to be a result of an ongoing war between the Rasta City Gang and the Muslim Gang, which occupy the community. More on this as it becomes available.


"Justice League" may be the No. 1 film in North America, but it also has the dubious distinction of being the lowest-opening film of the DC Comics Extended Universe. Studios on Sunday estimate that the enormously expensively superhero mashup will earn $96 million from 4,051 theaters. It is well below its modest $110 million estimates and pales in comparison to the $166 million launch of "Batman v Superman" in early 2016. Both films were similarly panned by critics. But not all was gloomy at the box office. "Wonder" opened in second place with a better than expected $27.1 million. The drama stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay. It's based on R.J. Palacio's novel about a child with a facial deformity.

Tzar Night club in Port of Spain, Trinidad was filled to capacity last Saturday as fans turned out in droves to seeDing Dong and the Ravers Clavers crew perform. The 'Shoulder Fling' singer kept the crowd moving for the duration of his set, which was preceded by S Carter, Bubbles, DJ Trevlyn, Hollywood Sachy, and local Magnum Tonic Wine Ambassadors Squid and Infamous K. Ding Dong wasted no time storming into his hit filled catalogue including 'Syvah', 'Shampoo', 'Fling' and the newest single 'LehbehLehbeh', much to the delight of fans. The dancehall star appeared courtesy of the Magnum Tonic Wine Buy Six and Win Campaign, which Trinidad served as the first in a series of activities across eight territories in the region. Both Ding Dong and Patrice Roberts are the faces of the campaign. Glen Rogers, Divisional Manager, Wines and Spirits at AMCO, was pleased with the support from attendees. “It’s the first that Magnum has had a regional campaign of this magnitude. In Trinidad, we are dancehall lovers just like our counterparts throughout the Caribbean. That’s what Magnum brings for Trinidad and Tobago. The energy, the vibe, and pulse of dancehall culture,” Rogers said. Magnum Tonic Wine has been impacting popular culture in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean since 1999. The product is a fortified tonic wine with 16.5% alcohol and Vigorton 2, a source of iron, minerals and vitamin B6. Recently, Magnum Tonic Wine’s label packaging was given a makeover, followed by its Tek Charge campaign.


2MileHill up on the Jumbotron in Barclays Center.

Mahalia Cummins of 2MileHill, did not drop the baton. Over the past three years as the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI) USA explored its partnership with the Brooklyn Nets – The Barclays Center, has come to life with Barbados’ culture for Bajan night every November. And annually a talented Barbadian has rendered the American National anthem on Bajan night. Last night, November 17, 2017, was no different as Mahalia showed her prowess. Following after Alison Hinds in 2015 and the ‘orange-haired songbird’ Nikita in 2016, Mahalia told Loop News: “It was a wonderful feeling to be able to take up the mantle and rep Barbados in that way.” For just about two minutes, the faces of the talented members of 2MileHill burned bright on the Jumbotrons as the announcer announced “Mahalia” and she ‘wowed’ the audience for almost a minute and 40 seconds. It may seem like a small time-period to some, but that was one of the biggest, widest reaching stages that Mahalia has hit so far because of the appeal of basketball. Last night’s game was between the Brooklyn Nets and the Utah Jazz. Originally posted by Raymond Callender, who was at the game according to his Facebook page. His video post received 1500 views, 75 shares and over 55 likes. Many Barbadians commented “Proud of you”, “whoop whoop”, “Yaaassssss”, “Proud to be Bajan”, and one person said Mahalia was “fire” as she put her own spin on the anthem. The Director of BTMI – USA, Petra Roach subsequently posted Mahalia’s performance and stated: “Barbadians need to stand up and be proud of the talent that originates from our little 166 sq mile rock !!!! Mahalia brought tears to many eyes and goose pimples were in abundance with her rendition of the American national anthem to open the Brooklyn Nets vs Utah Jazz game - it is our civic duty to provide these amazing young performers with an opportunity to be seen by a wider audience because they deserve it !!!! Mahalia you did Barbados proud - and I hope you get the further success of which you are so deserving !!!!” After the game, 2MileHill had a post-game performance in the Billboard Lounge, where they got to introduce new fans to their original tracks, while rekindling flames with members of their fanbase who were already in touch with their music. https://www.facebook.com/raymond.callender1/videos/10215178923046702/ The night was not only monumental for 2MileHill, Mahalia and Barbados as the Brooklyn Nets beat Utah Jazz. Final score 118 Nets, 107 Jazz.Fun Fact: The 118 points are the most the Nets have scored against Utah since December 23, 1986 pic.twitter.com/4AZ84CLmm8— Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) November 18, 2017

Tunisian-born designer Azzedine Alaia, a fashion iconoclast whose clingy styles helped define the 1980s and who dressed famous women from Hollywood to the White House, has died at age 77. The French Haute Couture Federation announced Alaia's death on Saturday without providing details. Twitter tributes to his influence on fashion poured in from around the world. Secretive and known as a fashion rebel, Alaia ((AZ'-uh-deen uh-LY'-uh) ) was based in Paris for decades but did not take part in the French capital's seasonal fashion frenzy or flashy ad campaigns. Instead, he showed privately on his own schedule. Alaia sometimes was dubbed the "king of cling" for the formfitting designs he first popularized during the 1980s and updated over the decades. Naomi Campbell was a favored model, and Michelle Obama wore his designs as U.S. first lady. His house's website described him as "the little man in eternal Chinese pajamas" who "built a legend, that of a rebel designer who worked against the system and its trends." Multiple museums have held retrospectives of Alaia's work, including the Guggenheim in New York and Paris' Palais Galliera, which put on a show in 2013 that highlighted his way of "slowing down time." "A genius who weaved connections among fashion, architecture and fine arts, sculpting creations to magnify women's bodies. A free and generous man, loved and admired," former French Culture Minister Audrey Azoulay, who recently became director of the United Nations cultural agency UNESCO, said in tribute to the designer. Azzedine Alaia was raised by his grandmother and earned a diploma at the Tunis Fine Arts Institute, according to his house's website. He arrived in Paris in the 1950s, where he rented a room in a countess' home in exchange for small jobs. He learned to sew at Guy Laroche and worked briefly at Christian Dior, and started his own house in 1980. He worked with superstars as well as low-cost retailer Tati, well before H&M popularized that kind of high-low cooperation with well-known designers. Alaia received offers to take over other fashion houses, but he routinely refused. He sought financial support in the 1990s and kept his company going. It had revenue of 60 million euros last year. No information was immediately available on survivors or memorial arrangements.


HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — The Latest on Zimbabwe's political turmoil (all times local): 10:05 p.m. Zimbabweans say they feel profoundly disappointed that longtime President Robert Mugabe is resisting pressure to step aside. Victor Matemadanda, secretary general of the country's war veterans association, tells The Associated Press he feels betrayed. Matemadanda says: "He is playing games with the people of Zimbabwe. He agrees to go and then plays games with us like that at the last minute." Mugabe's address to the nation said he would preside over the ruling party's congress next month, even though its Central Committee has recalled him as its leader and told him to resign as president by midday Monday or face impeachment. Matemadanda says the war veterans will again rally the people to protest, and "this time the army will let him face the people. ... The army will now choose between shooting the people or protecting Mugabe." ___ 9:45 p.m. Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has shocked the country by ending his address on national television without announcing his resignation, but he notes the political turmoil that led to his military house arrest and expulsion as ruling party leader. "From tonight ... the nation at all levels gets refocused," Mugabe says. He also says "failures of the past" may have triggered anger "in some quarters, which he calls "quite understandable." He also notes that "intergenerational conflict must be resolved," a reference to his apparent positioning of his unpopular 52-year-old wife to succeed him. Mugabe is 93 and had been backed by fellow veterans of the country's liberation war, until they turned against him. ___ 9:30 p.m. Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has baffled the country by ending his address on national television without announcing his resignation. The ruling party's Central Committee just hours earlier told him to resign as president by noon Monday or face impeachment proceedings the following day. Zimbabweans gathered in expectation of a celebration. Instead, Mugabe appeared to hint at challenging the ruling party, which has expelled him as its leader, by trying to stay on. Mugabe made a reference to presiding over a party congress next month. "The congress is due in a few weeks from now. I will preside over its processes, which must not be possessed by any acts calculated to undermine it or compromise the outcomes in the eyes of the public." Officials close to the talks between Mugabe and the military had said Mugabe was resigning. ___ 9:20 p.m. The army commander who took Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe under house arrest just days ago is helping Mugabe to turn the pages of his speech as he addresses the nation on his resignation. Zimbabweans accustomed to hours-long speeches by Mugabe are wondering how long this one will take. The state-run broadcaster introduced Mugabe's speech by saying: "Sit back, relax and join us." Ruling party leaders have told him to step aside by noon Monday or face impeachment. He says people cannot "ride roughshod over party rules and procedures." ___ 9:10 p.m. Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has begun speaking on state television on his resignation. He has shaken the hands of the military leaders who put him under house arrest just days ago. He says he is aware of a "whole range of concerns," including the economy, which is going through "a difficult patch." Mugabe is poised to step down after 37 years in power. He is the world's oldest head of state. He says "the pillars of state remained functional" amid the crisis, in which Zimbabweans rallied by the tens of thousands against him and ruling party leaders told him to step aside or face impeachment. ___ 8:55 p.m. Zimbabwe's state-run Herald newspaper says President Robert Mugabe has gone into a closed-door meeting with the military generals who put him under house arrest days ago. It's been two hours since the state broadcaster said Mugabe was expected to address the country on live TV. An official close to the talks on Mugabe's departure says the president is resigning after 37 years in power. Zimbabweans have been stunned and then exhilarated by the downfall of the world's oldest head of state, who had vowed to rule until death. He has been increasingly isolated since the military stepped in, with tens of thousands demonstrating Saturday in the capital for his departure. The ruling party's Central Committee on Sunday told Mugabe to resign as president by noon Monday or face impeachment. ___ 8 p.m. Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe is resigning after nearly four decades in power, according to an official close to the talks on his departure. The news comes hours after the ruling party's Central Committee fired Mugabe as party leader and said if he didn't resign as the country's president by noon Monday it would start impeachment proceedings. Mugabe will address the nation shortly on state-run television. The official close to the talks spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to reporters. It is an extraordinary end to 37 years in power for the world's oldest head of state, who had vowed to rule until death. The 93-year-old Mugabe has been under house arrest since the military moved in Tuesday, angered by his firing of his longtime deputy and the positioning of unpopular first lady Grace Mugabe to succeed him. Mugabe tried to buy time in negotiations with the military on a dignified exit but quickly found himself isolated. Tens of thousands of people poured into the streets of the capital Saturday to demand that Mugabe, one of Africa's last remaining liberation leaders, step aside after overseeing the once-prosperous country's economic collapse. The deputy Mugabe fired, former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, is poised to be Zimbabwe's next leader after the Central Committee made him its nominee to take over when Mugabe goes. — Farai Mutsaka in Harare. ___ 6:50 p.m. Zimbabwe's state-run broadcaster says longtime President Robert Mugabe will address the nation shortly amid pressure to resign after nearly four decades in power. The announcement comes hours after the ruling party's Central Committee fired Mugabe as party leader and said if he didn't resign as the country's president by noon Monday it would start impeachment proceedings. ___ 4:40 p.m. Zimbabwe's state-run Herald newspaper has tweeted photos of longtime President Robert Mugabe meeting for a second time with the army commander who put him under house arrest days ago. Mugabe is said to be seeking more time as talks continue on his departure after nearly four decades in power. But the ruling party is impatient to see him leave, saying Mugabe must resign as president by noon Monday or face impeachment proceedings. The military has been trying to give the departure a veneer of legality to avoid accusations of a coup. The Herald report gives no details on the meeting's outcome. ___ 3:50 p.m. Zimbabwe's ruling party Central Committee has expelled several high-level members close to unpopular first lady Grace Mugabe, while President Robert Mugabe is told to resign as the country's leader by noon Monday or face impeachment. Those expelled include minister of higher education Jonathan Moyo, finance minister Ignatious Chombo, Mugabe's nephew Patrick Zhuwao, local government minister Saviour Kasukuwere, foreign affairs minister Walter Mzembi and several other top members of the ZANU-PF party who were associated with the first lady. Some 200 delegates clapped and cheered the announcement and sent up an especially loud roar on hearing the action against Grace Mugabe. They also chanted of the president: "He must go!" ___ 3:25 p.m. Zimbabwe's ruling party Central Committee says recently fired Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa should be its nominee to take over as the country's president. The party has fired longtime President Robert Mugabe as its party chief and said if he doesn't step down as president by midday Monday they will begin impeachment proceedings when Parliament resumes Tuesday. The decisions follow a dramatic few days in which the military put Mugabe under house arrest, angered by his firing of Mnangagwa and positioning of the unpopular first lady to replace him — and likely succeed her husband as leader. The party accuses Grace Mugabe of "preaching hate, divisiveness and assuming roles and powers not delegated to the office." She is removed as head of the women's league. The party's decisions Sunday will be formalized at a special congress next month. ___ 3:15 p.m. Zimbabwe's ruling party Central Committee says longtime President Robert Mugabe must resign as president by noon Monday or impeachment proceedings will start. The ZANU-PF party has fired Mugabe as party chief, expelled his wife and named the recently dismissed Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the party chief. Parliament resumes Tuesday and impeachment proceedings would begin then. ___ 2:45 p.m. A Zimbabwe ruling party official confirms that the Central Committee has fired President Robert Mugabe as party leader and replaced him with the recently dismissed Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa. The emergency meeting also has recalled first lady Grace Mugabe as head of the women's league "forever." The meeting continues. Mugabe on Sunday is meeting with the army commander who put him under house arrest in a second round of negotiations on his departure as president after nearly four decades. ___ 2:05 p.m. Zimbabwe's ruling party Central Committee has begun recalling President Robert Mugabe as party leader and replacing him with recently fired Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa. The emergency meeting is also recalling first lady Grace Mugabe as head of the women's league "forever." The motion is yet to be formalized but will be complete shortly. ___ 1:20 p.m. A Zimbabwean ruling party Central Committee member says there could be prosecutions of members of a party faction close to the wife of President Robert Mugabe. Emmanuel Fundira also says he thinks it is a "fait accompli" that recently fired Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa will be reinstated and chosen to lead Zimbabwe after Mugabe's expected resignation. The Central Committee has opened an emergency meeting to recall Mugabe as party leader. Fundira says "corrupt and rotten" leaders in the ruling party should be punished. "There are some resources which have been taken away from this country," Fundira says. "Naturally, the laws will follow up and make sure that all those people are brought to book." ___ 12:40 p.m. Zimbabwe's ruling party Central Committee members have stood and cheered as the official chairing the emergency meeting announces plans to remove longtime President Robert Mugabe from his leadership post. Obert Mpofu says they are meeting with "a heavy heart" because Mugabe had served the country and contributed "many memorable achievements." But Mpofu says in his opening remarks that Mugabe's wife "and close associates have taken advantage of his frail condition" to loot national resources. The party is meeting to discuss demands to recall Mugabe as party leader and reinstate recently fired Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa. The 93-year-old Mugabe is meeting Sunday with the army commander who put him under house arrest days ago in a second round of talks on his departure after nearly four decades in power. ___ 12 p.m. Zimbabwe's ruling party Central Committee has begun meeting on demands to recall President Robert Mugabe as party leader. The ZANU-PF emergency meeting is also discussing the call to reinstate former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, whose firing by Mugabe earlier this month led the military to step in and put the president under house arrest. The ruling party also will consider recalling unpopular first lady Grace Mugabe as head of the women's league. She had been poised to replace Mnangagwa as vice president at a party congress next month and even succeed her husband. Mugabe was set to meet Sunday with the army commander in a second round of negotiations on his exit from power after nearly four decades. ___ 11:50 a.m. An influential figure in Zimbabwe's ruling party says he is concerned about possible violence if President Robert Mugabe does not resign immediately. Chris Mutsvangwa, head of the liberation war veterans, says he is concerned that the military could end up opening fire to protect Mugabe from protesters. He says there will be more demonstrations like the massive one Saturday if Mugabe's negotiations with the military on his departure from power don't end soon. He hopes Mugabe "gives into the fact that he has got to tender his resignation and leave." Mugabe was set to meet Sunday with the army commander who put him under house arrest in a second round of talks. "We would expect that Mugabe would not have the prospect of the military shooting at people, trying to defend him," Mutsvangwa says. "The choice is his." The ruling party is meeting on demands to recall Mugabe as party leader, while lawmakers to impeach him when Parliament resumes Tuesday. ___ 10:35 a.m. The youth league of Zimbabwe's ruling party says President Robert Mugabe should resign and take a rest as an "elder statesman," while his wife, Grace, should be expelled from the party "forever." The ZANU-PF ruling party is holding an emergency meeting to discuss demands to recall Mugabe as party leader. Youth league leader Yeukai Simbanegavi praises the military for moving against what she describes as a group of "criminals" led by Grace Mugabe. "It is unfortunate that the president allowed her to usurp executive authority from him, thereby destroying both the party and the government," Simbanegavi says at ruling party headquarters. She says the youth league also wants the reinstatement of Emmerson Mnangagwa, a former vice president whose firing by Mugabe followed harsh criticism by Zimbabwe's first lady. ___ 9:50 a.m. Senior figures in Zimbabwe's ruling party are gathering ahead of an emergency meeting to discuss calls to expel longtime President Robert Mugabe as party leader. A ZANU-PF party committee is meeting at headquarters in the capital, Harare. Soldiers are checking vehicles at the gate and a military vehicle is parked inside the grounds. The military has Mugabe under house arrest after moving in last week, angered by Mugabe's firing of his longtime deputy. At the edge of the party's compound, a ruling party banner that showed Mugabe's face has been partly torn down, possibly by demonstrators who surged through Harare on Saturday to demand that the president resign. ___ 9:10 a.m. Zimbabwe's parliament will "definitely" put in motion a process to impeach President Robert Mugabe, the main opposition's parliamentary chief whip says, adding that they have been in discussions with the ruling ZANU-PF party to act jointly. Innocent Gonese with the MDC-T party tells The Associated Press: "If Mugabe is not gone by Tuesday, then as sure as the sun rises from the east, impeachment process will kick in." The MDC-T has unsuccessfully tried to impeach Mugabe in the past, but now the ruling party has turned against him. The ruling party on Sunday is likely to fire Mugabe as party leader at a Central Committee meeting. State-run media also says Mugabe will meet the army commander who put him under house arrest for another round of talks. ___ 8:45 a.m. Clinging to his now-powerless post, longtime Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe is set to discuss his expected exit with the army commander who put him under house arrest. And a day after huge crowds rallied in the capital for Mugabe to go, the ruling party's Central Committee is expected to meet Sunday on demands by provincial branches to recall Mugabe as party leader. The meeting also is expected to reinstate the vice president whose firing nearly two weeks ago led the military to step in. Mugabe's talks with army commander Constantino Chiwenga are the second round of negotiations on an exit with a veneer of dignity as the military tries to avoid accusations of a coup. This time, the talks do not appear to include a South African government delegation.

UPDATE: Mugabe stated in a televised update on Sunday evening that he will stay on as President of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe is resigning after nearly four decades in power, according to an official close to the talks on his departure, in an extraordinary end for the world's oldest head of state who had vowed to rule until death. The news came hours after the ruling party's Central Committee on Sunday fired Mugabe as party leader and said if he didn't resign as the country's president by noon Monday it would start impeachment proceedings. Mugabe was set to address the nation shortly on state-run television. The official close to the talks spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to reporters. The 93-year-old Mugabe has been under house arrest since the military moved in Tuesday, angered by his firing of his longtime deputy and the positioning of unpopular first lady Grace Mugabe to succeed him. Mugabe tried to buy time in negotiations with the military on a dignified exit but quickly found himself isolated. Tens of thousands of people poured into the streets of the capital Saturday to demand that Mugabe, one of Africa's last remaining liberation leaders, step aside after overseeing the once-prosperous country's economic collapse. The deputy whom Mugabe fired, former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, is poised to be Zimbabwe's next leader after the Central Committee made him its nominee to take over when Mugabe goes. Mugabe speaking at the State House building where Mugabe holds official functions, a symbol of the rule of the man who took power after independence from white minority rule in 1980. Clinging to his virtually powerless post, Mugabe earlier on Sunday discussed his exit with the army commander who put him under house arrest days ago, in a second round of negotiations. Meanwhile, members of the ZANU-PF party's Central Committee stood, cheered and sang as Mugabe was recalled. Meeting chair Obert Mpofu referred to him as "outgoing president" and called it a "sad day" for Mugabe after his decades in power. "He has been our leader for a long time and we have all learned a great deal from him," Mpofu said. But Mugabe "surrounded himself with a wicked cabal" that brought him down. The meeting replaced Mugabe as party chief with Mnangagwa and recalled the first lady as head of the women's league. The Central Committee accused the first lady of "preaching hate, divisiveness and assuming roles and powers not delegated to the office." The committee's decisions will be formalized at a special party congress next month. The Central Committee also expelled several high-level members close to the first lady, including minister of higher education Jonathan Moyo, finance minister Ignatious Chombo, Mugabe's nephew Patrick Zhuwao, local government minister Saviour Kasukuwere, foreign affairs minister Walter Mzembi and several others. Zimbabwean officials never revealed details of Mugabe's talks with the military on his exit, but the military appeared to favor a voluntary resignation to maintain a veneer of legality in the political transition. Mugabe, in turn, likely was using whatever leverage he had left to try to preserve his legacy as one of Africa's liberation leaders or even protect himself and his family from possible prosecution. Chris Mutsvangwa, head of the country's liberation war veterans, vowed to "bring back the crowd" if the president didn't step aside but said he was concerned that the military would end up opening fire to protect Mugabe from protesters. "We would expect that Mugabe would not have the prospect of the military shooting at people, trying to defend him," Mutsvangwa said. "The choice is his." On Saturday, most of Harare's population of 1.6 million poured into the streets in an anti-Mugabe demonstration that just days ago would have brought a police crackdown. They clambered onto tanks moving slowly through the crowds, took selfies with soldiers and surged in the thousands toward the State House building. The euphoria came after years of watching the once-prosperous African nation fall into decay, with a collapsing economy, repression of free speech, disputed elections and international sanctions. Even as concerns remained about who next would be in charge, people reveled in the rare chance to express themselves freely. Let us have this moment, Zimbabweans said. If the next leader becomes trouble, they vowed to return to the streets again.
