dc.description.abstract Franklin McDonald of the Pan Caribbean Disaster Preparedness Office in Antigua assesses the extent of damages caused by Hurricane Gilbert on Jamaica. The unofficial death toll at the time was 30, with five reported deaths. Secondly, the Cuban Ambassador to Britain returns to Havana after being expelled over a shooting incident involving his Third Secretary, Carlos Medina in Central London. A brief statement from Timothy Eggar, Britain’s Foreign Office Minister and a report from Lionel Martin, a correspondent in Havana accused the CIA of attempting to trap the diplomat. Thirdly, Guyana’s President, Desmond Hoyte meets with officials of the IMF, the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington. Guyana and the IMF agreed on a policy paper on strategies for economic recovery. In an interview, Desmond Hoyte stated that the agreement will be ratified by the end of the year, and Joyce Lestrade, a Guyanese national employed by the Economic Intelligence Unit in London provides an analysis of the foreign policy paper. The segment concludes with a report on the death of the former Antiguan cricketer and sports administrator, Danny Livingston, and comments from former colleague, Roy Marshall. en_US
