Alotau locked down as PNG Air staff taken hostage by armed gang

A second armed robbery attempt reported in Alotau town  this morning  has been foiled by police as a criminal gang is still reported to be in the PNG Air office while police have barricaded the whole town area and set up blocks at entry and exit points in and out of Alotau. PNG Air Office staff have been taken hostage by the gang.

An eyewitness on the ground said criminals are still in hiding somewhere in the PNG Air office as all shops and banks, as well as the main market had shut down as of this morning.

This is the second robbery since the weekend after a police officer was shot dead at point blank. PNGFM/PNG Today
