Troops to be deployed to Mendi this weekend

Police and Military personals to be deployed to Mendi for the Call Out will be on ground by this weekend.

Police Commissioner, Gari Baki, says because it is a joint operation, they are finalising logistics and should have the security personals travel either by Friday or Saturday into Mt Hagen and onto Mendi.

He has confirmed that they are looking at stationing 400 to 500 security personals in Southern Highlands Province.

An investigation team will be on ground as well to investigate how the fighting and destruction took place.
