Unrest in Salisbury

REPORTS OUT OF Dominica say police were despatched to Salisbury this morning after the main road was blocked by debris which was set on fire.

There were also reports of bottles and stones being thrown.

The action impeded traffic from Roseau and Portsmouth.

Back in June 2015, villagers blocked the road to protest conditions in the area but no reason was given for today’s action.

The incident delayed the beginning of the Windward Island Cricket Tournament. The Dominica Cricket Association said the matches would begin on Tuesday since the blockage meant teams could not travel to the grounds. (BN)
