From Nine To Noon, 9:45 am on 17 May 2024

RNZ Pacific Editor Koroi Hawkins has the latest from New Caledonia, where five people have been killed in violent clashes between indigenous Kanak pro-independence protestors and security forces. Local media are reporting people are panic buying, as shops run out of food, water and fuel. Medicines and blood supplies in hospitals are also getting low. And the French Government has banned Tiktok in New Caledonia, in a bid to limit contact between rioters.
