Peter Tosh, late raggae star, gets Jamaica honor

KINGSTON, Jamaica--Twenty-five years after his murder, Jamaica's government on Monday honored the contributions of firebrand reggae musician and songwriter Peter Tosh, one of the Caribbean island's musical giants.

Tosh's daughter Niambe, an educator from Boston, Massachusetts, received the posthumous “order of merit” — the country's third highest honor — on behalf of her late father during an annual national awards ceremony on the lawns of King's House, the residence of Jamaica's governor general.

Tosh was a founding member of the Wailers, forming the three-man core of the group with Bob Marley and Bunny Livingston.
