Jamaicans on terror watch list

Jamaica Gleaner "Several of the persons being watched by the United States, according to confidential diplomatic cables from the United States Embassy in Kingston, are suspected associates of controversial Muslim Sheik Abdullah el-Faisal. Many are suspected of narcotics trafficking, terrorism, and human trafficking. Others have been labelled radical Muslims and criminal deportees.

From the cables, it appears that there were fears that at least two terrorist attacks were being planned for the resort towns of Montego Bay, St James, and Ocho Rios, St Ann."
