Papua New Guinea police, soldiers storm parliament, demand pay

It seems that while the Papua New Guinea government found the money to buy a fleet of Maseratis to taxi Apec leaders to their summit in Port Moresby last week, it didn't have enough left over to pay for security services. Hundreds of police, prison officers and some soldiers descended on the parliament yesterday demanding to be paid for their work providing security at the summit.
