Youth reportedly dead after Madang police assault

During yesterday’s protest at the Madang Four-Mile market, 13 youths were rounded up by police and taken to the station.

One of the parents, Julie Parr, told Loop PNG that her son texted her saying they were brutally beaten up in the cells after they were apprehended at around 2pm on Monday (April 9).

“One of them died from his injuries while only 12 remain in there.”
