Breaking News! Confrontation between Police and Students at the University of Papua New Guinea

There has been a confrontation between students studying at the University of Papua New Guinea and PNG Police.

After a month long student protest by the students (they boycotted classes for nearly 2 months now) against Prime Minister Peter Oneil over allegations of corruption, the students decided to stage a protest march this morning.

The planned protest turned nasty when the PNG Police opened fire with guns. Reports and pictures posted on other social media say 4 students have been wounded and 1 student is feared dead!
