JAMAICAN-based telecommunications company says that two of it employees were killed by the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that hit Haiti yesterday.

“Whilst our Turgeau building in Port-au-Prince withstood yesterday’s earthquake and we were able to evacuate all of our 900 employees from the building, it is our very sad duty to confirm that two of our staff members lost their lives,” said Digicel Chief Executive Officer Colm Delves in a statement today.
