The Trinidad and Tobago government has announced the establishment of a National Security Special Operations Group to deal with criminal activities in the country.



National Security Minister Gary Griffith says the unit will be staffed with highly trained and specialised people capable of dealing with hostage negotiation, counter-terrorist activities and gang warfare.



He stressed that the unit is different from the Special Anti-Crime Unit of Trinidad and Tobago, which the coalition government disbanded soon after coming to office in 2010.
