A Papuan free for all:

An independence movement in the Indonesian province of Papua threatens to turn into a humanitarian disaster and bring new tensions to the fragile ties between Canberra and Jakarta.

The PNG Government recently expressed fears that Islamic extremist militia in Papua could use the province as a base to strike Australian targets on the PNG side of the border.

So do we get to liberate them too?
