Arrests in Papua Murders

Seven individuals, including 2 employees of Freeport's Grasberg mining complex, have been arrested in the cases of three killings on the approach road to the mine.

The report as of now makes no assertion as to any affiliation of the accused, whether they are brigands, anti-government militants, *or* rival security providers currently trying for new contracts "guarding" the mine.
