Chinese-owned businesses in Papua New Guinea are being looted and attacked in a spate of anti-Chinese violence. News.com.au reports:
Looting and anti-Chinese violence started in the capital Port Moresby on Wednesday and continued over the weekend in PNG’s Highlands region and Madang Province, on the north-west coast.
[…] Last week, PNG workers had violent clashes with management at the Chinese-run Ramu nickel mine in Madang Province after a tractor injured a worker.
On Friday, police in Port Moresby had to use tear gas to quell a riot near a popular market.
Allegations of a rise in Chinese organised crime and corruption involving PNG officials has also added to community anger.
