The body of Christopher Chi was found last night on San Lorenzo road near Orange Walk. Three persons of interest including 2 minors are currently detained in relation to his murder. Our news team headed to Orange Walk this morning and spoke to the family of the boy, as they surveyed the cement culvert where the child's decomposed body was found. Cherisse Halsall reports.

It was the tenth day of September yesterday, and at the end of tonight's news, we'll show you highlights of the parade and the official ceremony. But it wasn't just a ceremonial event, we picked up some strong and surprising political signals in the parade - which has always been a showcase for UDP muscle. First, we saw Deputy Leader Patrick Faber out in force with his Collet constituents, but his crowd, very notably, did not include any national political figures. His rival for leader, on the other hand, Belmopan rep John Saldivar seems to have come down to the city to make a statement on Faber's home turf. Saldivar was in Albert Rep Tracey Taegar Panton's larger and more animated crowd.

Making Literacy Matter
2 years ago, the Ministry of Education declared literacy as a national priority for Belize's primary school children. That's after they realized that the students had deficiencies in their ability to read and properly comprehend. Since then, they've worked diligently on strategies to try and assist students countrywide to improve on this very important area of their education. They believe that they've found several methods that work, and so today, they held a workshop with educators from the different districts to hopefully disseminate techniques to teach reading to the nation's children.

Celebrating Belize, the 10th and The Queen of the Bay

Celebrations Take Off in San Pedro for the 10th Day Of September
221 years ago, in a final attempt to take over the area, the Spaniards took on a small but scrappy group of Brits and their slaves. The Spanish basically controlled the entire “New World” at that time. But after 7 days the British prevailed and expelled the Spaniards – and held onto British Honduras (later Belize) for almost 200 more years. September 10th is a national holiday in Belize and celebrates this battle for independence. In San Pedro, it is a day to party, for many, a day off from work and a day for the uniform parade.
