The killing of two immigrants in Trinidad and Tobago has led the country's Chinese community to call for the government for greater protection.
Sixty-year-old Wu Xia Hua and her husband Yang Jiang Hua, 59, were fatally shot at a restaurant they owned in the Trinidadian town of Cunupia last Thursday.
The event has triggered concerns by Chinese residents in the country that they're being targeted by criminals.
Chinese Ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, Yang Youming, says his embassy has advised Chinese business owners there to heighten their security and take measures to protect themselves.
However, Trinidad & Tobago's Minister of National Security, Jack Warner, is reportedly seeking to assure the Chinese community that they are not being singled out by criminals.
