The new president of Panama was sworn in yesterday. He pledged to keep his three main campaign promises, the first of which was to get tough with criminals. He owns a chain of supermarkets called “Super 99” and one of them was attacked by an armed gang last night.  A shoot-out ensued. Not an auspicious start… but at least the gang was caught.
