The Koki market area in Port Moresby was in chaos this morning as two groups clashed, in yet again another ethnic clash in the capital city of Papua New Guinea.
According to police, the clash was between a group from Goilala and a group from Wanigeli after a market vendor from Goilala was allegedly attacked by villagers from the Wanigela village.
The ethnic clash forced the shops within the vicinity of the market area to close and the bus stops emptied off morning commuters heading to school or work, leaving many stranded especially school students.
So far, no casualties have been reported in the clash despite projectiles been thrown about between the two groups.
Meanwhile, police units attending to the incident were not many and all that they could do is watch as the groups go at each other with whatever they could get their hands on and throw.
