Renewed gang violence in Jamaica has left 10 people dead.

Gunmen in Spanish Town, west of the capital, Kingston, have killed eight members of two families.

Two suspects were later shot and killed by police.

Members of the Klansman Gang and the One Order gang, which have been feuding for years, are blamed. Hundreds of people have been killed in their battles.

Spanish Town is the former capital of the island.
