JAKARTA (Reuters) – Six hundred Indonesian soldiers will finish building a highway in the province of Papua, a military spokesman said on Tuesday, after 16 construction workers were killed by separatists in the restive area last year.

The soldiers working on the Trans-Papua highway and 21 bridges will continue security operations in the area home to a simmering separatist conflict since Papua was incorporated into Indonesia in 1969.

“They will build the road because conditions in the field are difficult and there are disruptions from armed criminal groups,” military spokesman Brigadier General Sisriadi said via text message.

Construction on parts of the 4,300 km (2,672 miles) highway has been stalled for months after the military wing of the Free Papua Movement (OPM) claimed responsibility for killing at least 16 workers and a soldier in Nduga district in December …

    I have provided the URL Below that provides access to the Global Research website, this has been provided to the people that prefer fact news as opposed to the dross that is fed to the World by the USA.
    The heavily censored US international news is determinedly sent to Australia’s mainstream media proprietors to influence the news to be a reset of the facts that will then issue through our mainstream media newsproviders.

    Back all those many years ago, it was the US that argued ‘against’ Australia to the partitioning of the Papua/West Papua territory, let it go to Indonesia was the idiocy of their then preferencing Indonesia.
    Their meddling in Australia’s national affairs continues on to this very day.

    Question: which country introduced the terror of terrorism into our World?
    (a small clue, think of 9/11.)

    Seems that the entire World is beholden to the American style false/fake mainstream media news across the World no matter to often important international events are simply glossed over. The true story of Papua/West Papua is of the Indonesian brutality and slaughter leading to the slow genocide of that realms indigenous tribal owners.
    Malcolm Fraser had warned Australia that being a vassal of the USA is very dangerous for all of Australia.
    Yet the World’s media are as good as bending over and maintaining that position while America has its way with the media news platform owners, the recent events in the country of Venezeula presents as a classic demonstration of America’s propaganda machine having been cranked up to its most powerful magnitude.
    While the World’s most murderous country spin their story of America’s kindly offered truck loads of food and medicines, yet below the surface goods of food etc, there lays fencing wire and construction nails.
    Unless one searches for honest news they in their laziness or disinterest will become mere American propaganda infused dross.
    I recommend Global Research as an International news service.
    Tragic for Australia it is if one kowtows to the current Liberal party leadership government, unfortunately they are little more than whores to America’s evil programs of One World……One Government.
