With the Parliamentary Elections having been held on the 9th there has been a bit of tension in Papua. Leading up to Election Day and on it there were localised attacks across Papua in Jayapura, Nabire, Wamena and Biak. If you are unaware the Free Papua Movement has been active since the late 60’s. They have been given some autonomy but the separatists want Papua to be an independent state.

Since the election there has still been a lot of tension. I won’t say too much on here but today we are not flying to Mulia. However, the Polisi PZL Skytruck is today they are carrying heavily armed officers from the Brigade Mobil Special Operations Force (BRIMOB). These guys really mean business.
