Murders shock post-eruptions community

The gruesome incident which spanned more than two hours last night started when a young man apparently went berserk and started hacking people with a bush knife.

The young man then went on to chop up a woman believed to be his first cousin and one of her children, a young girl of  about 10 years old. Two of her children managed to escape with their lives.

Tourists with good hearts bestow gifts on school

Two kind hearted visitors from Sydney in Australia brought smiles to the faces of the children attending this little known school on the south eastern edge of Kokopo town.

Two elderly women, Jane Kaine and Elaine Handford, reached out to the  children with colouring books, colouring pencils, reading books, exercise books, pencils and many other gifts.

They were among the 2000 tourists on board the Dawn Princess vessel that called into Simpson’s Harbour last week.

They were also among  1039 tourists who visited war memorial sites in Rabaul and Kokopo.
