REPRESENTATIVES of an umbrella group which represents the country’s sex workers, drugs addicts, and people living with HIV/AIDS paid a visit last week to a gully in New Kingston which was a haven for drug addicts and prostitutes after their shacks were destroyed by a police team

The group condemned the cops actions, saying it left the already homeless people without a roof over their heads. Police say the shacks were destroyed after a man who went to solicit sex was murdered in the area. Here are some photos of the homeless people and their living conditions.
