A SECOND teenager attempted to commit suicide the same day a student tried to kill himself on his high school's campus, police said.

Letter: Very grateful for Police presence on Nassau streets

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Please allow me to publicly commend the Royal Bahamas Police Force on the order they have brought to the streets of Nassau over the past two weeks.

Since the opening of schools, police officers have successfully calmed the usually-chaotic morning traffic.

The impact of their efforts has been very noticeable and much appreciated.

Motorists no longer have to sit in traffic to no end. Although there is still some waiting, there is no comparison to the waits that are endured when traffic officers are not present.

The public should realise that in directing traffic, police officers help reduce incidents of crime more than one would first recognise. This brings a level ...

Progressive Liberal Party Statement On Straw Vendors in New York

Nassau, Bahamas - The Deputy Prime Minister Brent Symonette's remarks about the
arrest of the vendors in New York is unhelpful. A Minister of Foreign
Affairs cannot come off as politically impotent in their situation. When
its citizens are in trouble, they expect that the government will come
to their assistance. Thankfully, the technocrats in Foreign Affairs know
what their job is: to intervene to ensure that there is due process,
that they are being properly treated and have the benefit of all the
rights to which they are entitled. Now is not the time to lecture people
about what they ought to be doing but rather to seek to help in a bad
situation.

From what is in the public domain, firstly it is being
said that the Americans conducted a surveillance operation in the
Bahamas which led to the arrest of the individuals...
