Tribes kill children
ELEVEN people have been killed and “many” injured in a fight between two warring tribes in a remote Papua New Guinea jungle. Among the dead were two children and a heavily pregnant woman, the PNG PostCourier said, with highpowered guns used to attack jungle villages only accessible by helicopter in the Pacific nation’s west. The National newspaper said “many others” were injured. Western Highlands police commander Superintendent Martin Lakari said authorities were struggling to stop the slaughter among the Kukurin and Yapetalin tribes because it was such an isolated area.
