Tensions fuel clashes in Indonesia's Papua

At least 16 killed in violence after UN criticises Jakarta's human rights record in eastern province.

    Tensions have sparked violence in the Indonesian province of Papua after the United Nations criticised Jakarta's human rights record there.

    A series of attacks in the country's eastern province have left 16 people dead and Papuans and the Indonesian military are blaming each other for the ongoing unrest.

    While Papuans are calling for an international investigation, the government insists the problem must be solved locally.
