Police have shot dead two West Papuan activists and burnt down a house in the provincial city of Wamena which was used as the ''Tribal Council'' office for community meetings.

Hubertus Mabel, 30, and Natalis Alua, both members of the West Papua National Committee (KNPB), were shot outside a house in the village of Kurulu about 11am on Sunday and later died. Activists said the house belonged to Mr Hubertus's family and he was there for Christmas.
