Dominica PM vows action in attack on foreigners

Taiwan News Online: "The prime minister of Dominica says police have detained people for questioning in an attack that killed a man from Ireland and wounded a U.S. couple who own a hotel on the Caribbean island.
Roosevelt Skerrit said a team of officers is investigating the attack. He vowed in an interview Tuesday that those responsible would be punished. He also said it was a rare case of violent crime and should not create an impression that Dominica is dangerous."
