Police in Papua New Guinea say they have arrested a teenage tribesman suspected of shooting a New Zealand tourist with arrows.

The tourist was relaxing at a river in the North Fly District last June when he was hit with arrows in his stomach and chest.

Police say a 19-year-old was arrested two weeks ago and has been charged with attempted murder.
