State Conflict[edit]

In May 2014, a truck ran over a group of church pilgrims, critically wounding three. The truck driver took refuge in the local Moanemani Brimob post. Riots ensued demanding the state release of the truck driver, although police refused.[3][4]

In September 2012, the Indonesian army swept through the local area in search of a Free Papua Movement leader. Witnesses reported that troops forced villagers to shave and warned them to wear clean, new clothing.[5]
