Fighting in PNG's Enga causes 'humanitarian crisis'

From , 6:05 am on 29 November 2018

Police in Papua New Guinea's Enga province say tribal violence has escalated to a humanitarian crisis.

At least seven people were killed in shoot-outs and revenge killings between two tribes in Enga last week.

Although the conflict has subsided, thousands of residents have had to flee after their homes were burned down.
