Two dead in Tribal fight in Hela

Two deaths have occurred yesterday in what has been reported to be the result of continued tribal fighting between clans in Kubalu, Komo Magarima which further moved towards Nogoli close to the Oil Search base camp.
Tari Police Station Commander, Inspector Salias Kenzy confirmed the fight and said it was getting tense with the use of high-powered guns.

PSC Kenzy said the security situation in the province is proving to be challenging with many of the Tari based police officers from Southern Highlands returning to their province fearing possible retaliation from relatives of the two policemen from Koroba killed in SHP during the elections.
Inspector Kenzy said they are working with the Mobile Squad on operation in the LNG and Oil Search Project site to ensure the tribal fight does not affect mining operations.

Meanwhile landowners have also blocked off some entry points into the LNG sites in the province over royalty payments. A five metres deep trench was dug in the early hours of yesterday morning making it impossible for vehicles to access. It is believed land owners want the attention of their leaders in the province to assist them air their grievances. PNGFM / PNG Today
