Share the News

Morobe police have arrested two more suspects involved in the killing of 10 Amari tribesmen in Markham District during an ethnic clash in April.

Provincial Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Augustine Wampe, says the two men were arrested and charged for taking part in the killing of the 10 men.

This now brings the total number of suspects arrested to four.

Wampe says the two suspects were taken to the Ramu Police station where they were formally arrested and charged.

The two identified are Livai Solomon, 33 and Chris George, 21. They appeared at Ramu District Court on July 5 and their case was adjourned to this Friday.

The fighting started at the Mutzing station, after it was alleged that an intoxicated student from Markham Valley High School, who had purchased drinks at the Mutzing Market, demanded the seller give him an extra can.

The seller attacked the student.

The student left and returned with other friends at the school and attacked the man.

The fighting escalated when relatives from the two sides joined in the clash, resulting in the 10 deaths.
