UNKNOWN ARMED MEN THREATENED MONO VILLAGERS
Unknown armed men from across the border in Bougainville have threatened villagers of Mono Island in Western Province with gun shots yesterday.
A concerned citizen of Shortland island, who requested anonymity confirms the incident to SIBC News today.
The concerned man says the shooting incident results from an argument between landowners and armed men who support logging on Shortland islands.
The informant calls on both governments of Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea to quickly resolve illegal border crossing between Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.
The person says the issue is serious as the shooting incident puts Solomon Islands security at risk.
SIBC News hopes to run a separate story on the issue as a statement from the police today says it is yet to receive any confirmation of the incident.
