University of Papua New Guinea obtains injunction to stop protests

  • Following the violent demonstrations in which a large number of people were injured, the University of Papua New Guinea has obtained an injunction to stop protests. At least 23 people were injured when police opened fire as students were trying to march from their campus in Port Moresby to the parliament. The students are demanding that Prime Minister Peter O'Neill should resign to answer allegations of corruptions. However, Peter O'Neill denies the allegations. O'Neill is facing a possible no-confidence motion in parliament.
