PNG students to march against military violence

1:27 pm on 18 July 2013

University of Papua New Guinea students are planning to march on parliament in Port Moresby today.

The march is to protest against the violent attack by soldiers on university students at the weekend.

Dozens of students were reportedly injured when more than 30 soldiers assaulted students and staff of the Medical and Health Sciences campus connected to Port Moresby General Hospital on Sunday.

Two soldiers have been arrested and police say they expect more arrests to be made in the coming days.
