Trinidad police probe slaying of US soldier

Washington Post: "PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad -- Police in Trinidad say a 38-year-old U.S. Army soldier vacationing on the Caribbean island was killed when gunmen rammed his car from behind in a rough slum and then opened fire.

Authorities say Sgt. Simeon Roderique was shot Tuesday night shortly after dropping a woman off at her home in Laventille, a gang-plagued community just east of Trinidad's capital. The woman's brother was also killed."
