Officials at Sentani Airport in Jayapura, Papua, arrested a man, identified as KDM, 30, because he was carrying eight 8.4 mm carbine cartridges on Monday.
Sentani Airport Police sub-precinct chief, First Insp. Abraham Soumilena, said that the airport officials found the ammunition in his bag when it was scanned by an x-ray device.
"The man was entering the waiting room to continue his journey to Nabire on a Wings Air flight. He was detained and questioned over the ammo," he said.
KDM, who claims to be a student of Indonesian Christian University (UKI) in Jakarta, arrived at Sentani Airport on 6:05 a.m. local time on Lion Air flight JT 794. He could not provide any personal identification when he was being examined by the police.
Abraham said that KDM had been transferred to Jayapura Police station for further questioning. (put)

2) Papuan militiaman shot dead by Indonesian military during firefight

Updated at 7:33 pm on 3 February 2014
A Papuan militiaman has been shot dead in Indonesia's remote province of West Papua.
The Bangkok Post reports the police and military acted on a tip-off and raided a gathering of members of the rebel Free Papua Movement, or OPM, near a beach in the Yapen Waropen district on Saturday.
A Papua police spokesman Pudjo Sulistyo, says the two groups became involved in a shoot-out, after the armed militiamen refused to surrender.
He says one of the activists was shot dead in the firefight.
Police arrested eleven members and seized weapons, along with the outlawed pro-independence Morning Star flag.
Mr Sulistyo says three security officers were wounded.
The OPM has for years waged a low-level insurgency - often using bows and arrows rather than guns - against Indonesian rule over the resource-rich, ethnically Melanesian region.
