PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) -- The government of Trinidad & Tobago says it is investing $93 million to buy six helicopters and four drones to help fight crime.

National Security Minister Gary Griffith told reporters late Thursday that the drones will be used for surveillance and intelligence-gathering, among other things.

The twin-island nation of 1.3 million people has struggled with high rates of violent crime fueled by drug trafficking, especially in the capital of Port-of-Spain.
