Cuba have been “brutally attacked and injured” by a gunman who invaded
their residence in the small Jamaican town where they were providing
free medical care.
Health Minister Fenton Ferguson says Monday’s attack on the women in the
town of Buff Bay was “unforgivable, especially since they have committed
themselves to service to the people of that community.”
Ferguson says the nurses are hospitalized in stable condition. They have
been working at a hospital in the small coastal community in northeast
Area parliamentarian Daryl Vaz says a suspect has been detained by police.
For years, Cuba has sent numerous doctors and nurses to provide free
