​Police report string of deaths in Pom

​Port Moresby police has reported a string of deaths in the past week.

Metropolitan Superintendent, Ben Turi, said since last Thursday, 10 deaths have been reported to police.

Details of the deaths vary as all eight men and two women were killed at different times and at different locations in the city.

Apart from two people killed in an election-related incident at Vadavada last weekend, other deaths were related to domestic arguments and ethnic clashes.

In a different occurrence, the body of a woman was found inside a public toilet at Boroko over the weekend while another man was discovered with stab wounds just above his groin area.

Details behind these deaths are still unknown as police carry out investigations.

A concerned Turi is calling on all residents in the city to have some respect and decency for human life.
