Attacks in Papua

Police in Indonesia have blamed separatist fighters for a spate of attacks near a US-owned mine in the country's remote Papua region that left three people dead. An

Australian mining expert and a security guard were killed in separate ambushes on Saturday and Sunday close to the Grasberg copper and gold mine owned by American mining conglomerate Freeport.

On Monday the body of a third victim, an Indonesian policeman, was found in the same area, Indonesia's state news agency reported.
