Reuters reveals three brothers killed by Indonesian soldiers at Papuan health clinic: army and witness accounts differ

A Reuters investigation into the deaths of three brothers at the hands of Indonesia’s military in the remote province of Papua highlighted how the long-running conflict in the resource-rich region is undermining the reputation of the Southeast Asian country. Indonesia’s military said the brothers were armed separatists who tried to seize their weapons and were killed by security forces in an act of self-defense. Reuters spoke to more than a dozen people, including a Catholic priest and a local government official, family members and human rights monitors by phone and also reviewed photos of the men’s bodies, a report on the killing of the brothers by human rights investigators in Papua and other evidence which all cast doubt on the official version of how the men died at a health clinic.
