Search widens for Papua attackers Hundreds of police and military personnel are stepping up their search of the remote Papuan jungle for the attackers of a convoy of mainly international workers at the weekend. Three people -- two Americans and an Indonesian -- were killed and 10 others injured in the attack which occurred on a road leading to a U.S.-owned copper and gold mine in the remote Indonesian province of Papua, formerly called Irian Jaya. Eight wounded -- including a six-year-old girl -- have been taken to Townsville hospital in northern Australia.

Papua drops student fees, hikes teacher salaries With new powers under the special autonomy laws, the provincial legislature in Irian Jaya (Papua) has dropped all fees for elementary and high school students as of the 2002/2003 academic year to give children more of an opportunity to receive a quality education. Jerry Haurissa, chief of the local education office, said financial issues had been one of the main problems preventing school-age children from attending school. "With the new policy, all Papuan children aged between six and 18 are expected to go to school in attempt to improve the human resource quality in the province," he told The Jakarta Post here on Tuesday.
