BARBADOS was top of the news in the Daily Mail's online edition on Wednesday morning.
It was up there on the Guardian, the Sun, the New York Daily News and a load of other outlets.
Dream coverage for the start of the tourist season? Not quite. The big story was Rihanna's younger cousin, 21-year-old Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne, shot dead near his home on Boxing Day evening.
It's been a bad-news December for Barbados.
