Three arrested over killing of 10 Chinese in PNG

They died when their shop was set on fire.

Police have reported that detectives arrested and charged the three suspects last week.

Because of a lack of funding the investigation into the killings had been stopped but money from the provincial government allowed police to re-open the case.

Deputy commissioner of police operations, Donald Yamasombi, said the three suspects had been charged with breaking into the building with intent to commit a crime, 10 counts of wilful murder, and arson.

PNG police enter Manus asylum centre, Australia confirms

Hundreds of men have refused to leave the Manus Island centre since it was shut down on 31 October, citing fears for their safety.

On Thursday, multiple men inside the centre said that PNG police had given them a one-hour deadline to leave.

Australia said it was a PNG operation.

Under a controversial policy, Australia has detained asylum seekers who arrive by boat in camps on Manus Island and Nauru, a small Pacific nation.
