Occupation of airstrip continues after 2 weeks

Members of the OPM are still in occupation of the airstrip in Kaisepo, Papua, and have been in occupation for two weeks already.


The police said that they would continue to pursue the path of persuasion. He said that taking action to end the occupation had been made more difficult because those in occupation were now protected by about 150 young people. 'If we only had to deal with three armed OPM members, it would be no problem, but to take action might result in casualties.'
