Cops release sketch of arson suspect

Kaieteur News: "Barbados police yesterday released a sketch of one of the men suspected of hurling ‘channa-bombs’ into the Campus Trendz Boutique in Tudor Street on Friday and causing an inferno that claimed the lives of six women, including a Guyanese.
The incendiary devices were thrown into the building around 19:00hrs after the suspects had allegedly carried out a brazen robbery there.
The dead include 19-year-old store employees Amanda Pearl Cornelius (a Guyanese), 24-year-old Vincentian Kellisha Olliviere, and 18-year-old Barbadian Shanna Griffith. The other victims, Kelly-Ann Welch (24), Tiffany Harding (23) and Nikita Belgrave (23) were shopping for clothes to go out later that night.
The Guyanese store-owner , Yasmin Ali, known as Shameez, was chopped and sustained burns during the attack. She has since been released from hospital."
