Several students were wounded when police opened fire today with tear gas and with what they said were warning shots against a University of Papua New Guinea rally heading to Parliament.

But police and hospital authorities denied anybody had been killed as stated in earlier news reports while saying eight students had been treated at Port Moresby General Hospital for gunshot wounds.

These graphic images capture scenes from today at Waigani campus – from peaceful protest to bloodied bodies. The students have been protesting against Prime Minister Peter O’Neill for several weeks.
