• Gunmen kill 4 road workers in indonesia’s Papua


    JAKARTA: Gunmen on Tuesday shot dead four road workers in Indonesia’s Papua, police said, the latest deadly violence in the insurgency-hit eastern province. The unidentified gunmen ambushed a group of seven civilian workers who were paving a road in the remote and mountainous Sinak area of Puncak district, local police chief Paulus Waterpauw told Agence France-Presse. “Three were shot dead at the scene, and another died later,” he said. One worker was found alive while two others were missing, he added. Police did not specify which group was behind the attack. Separatists usually target security forces, but on occasion attack and kidnap Indonesian and foreign workers in the province. Waterpauw said more police would be sent to the area on Wednesday to hunt the attackers.
