Indonesia deploys troops to West Papua as protests spread

Indonesia has deployed more troops to West Papua as demonstrations calling for the region’s independence spread.

Government buildings have been torched and reports of unrest belie earlier assurances by the government that the unrest had been contained.

President Joko Widodo’s chief security minister, Wiranto, told reporters on Tuesday that Jakarta is deploying more forces to West Papua in anticipation of larger protests on Wednesday across the region.
