UNITED NATIONS - A senior Caribbean diplomat has accused the New York City Police Department of "flagrant violation" of the rules of diplomatic immunity and privileges by aggressively arresting the ambassador of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The New York police countered by saying that the envoy from the tiny island nation refused to identify himself after pushing past a security barrier intended to protect Israel's diplomatic headquarters in New York City from attack.

In a letter to US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, Delano Bart, ambassador of St. Kitts and Nevis and chairman of the U.N. caucus of the Caribbean nations group, known as CARICOM, said the incident occurred on Wednesday after St. Vincent's envoy, Camillo Gonsalves, stepped out of his car.
