KINGSTON, Jamaica — Prime Minister Andrew Holness disclosed on Tuesday during the sitting of the House of Representatives that zones of special operations (ZOSOs) are to be rolled out in an additional 20 communities across the island.

On the crime scene, the police in St James are probing the death of an elderly man whose body was found at his home in Granville on Tuesday with the limbs missing.

In sport, Jamaica's Reggae Girls earned a historic spot in next year's Fifa Women's World Cup by defeating Panama 4-2 on penalties after a 2-2 draw on Wednesday in the third place playoff of the CONCACAF Women's Championship qualifying tournament in Texas.
