Violence Continues

Added to site: Mar 29
The Highlands continues to demonstrate its proclivity to violence. 

U.N. is thinking/doing of withdrawing staff from Tari, as there was gunfire on the street near where they stay yesterday. 2 schoolboys and 1 village man were killed by machetes after disagreement between village and headmaster at school near Mendi. 2 large classrooms and 3 dormitories burned to the ground, students marched on village, now 3 dead. 

Yesterday I hear buses being held up by bandits with guns between Tari and Mendi before yesterday. Occupants stripped of money !

It is not all peaceful in paradise here. I hope we don’t get caught up in it!
