West Papuans protest against discrimination

Security forces watch as a building burns after hundreds of demonstrators marched near Papua's biggest city Jayapura on Thursday evening, where they set fire to a regional assembly building and hurled rocks at shops and hotels. Indonesia's Papua was plunged into chaos again as angry protesters torched a government building and damaged businesses, according to an AFP reporter, after nearly two weeks of riots across the island.
