1) Two killed in Jayapura  landslide


A landslide triggered by heavy rains killed two people in the Papua provincial capital of Jayapura on Tuesday evening.
The two were found dead after the landslide struck their rented house, a source said.
The bodies of the landslide victims, identified as Undari and Elisabeth Lunnisai, had been taken to the Hamadi naval hospital for a post-mortem examination.

2) PT Agriprima Cipta Persada Planting Oil Palm Without a Permit.

PT Agriprima Cipta Persada is going ahead with its oil palm plantation in Muting even though it has been turned down for a permit. The forestry ministry has currently rejected the company’s application to release the land from the forest estate and classify it for other uses such as plantations. However the company is going ahead regardless and planting oil palm illegally. All photos, taken in December 2013, are courtesy of Greenpeace Papua.
