Shootings in Papua Province (Indonesia)

There have been a number of shootings and 3 deaths in the Papua Province of Indonesia. So far, it is the employees of Freeport mine that have been the targets. However, anyone planning to climb Carstensz Pyramid, or any other peaks in that region, should pay attention to these events IMO.

Full story.
