Fresh clashes in Indonesia's Papua region

Hundreds of police and student demonstrators clashed in the town of Manokwari.
Reports from the town say eight people were injured in protests, including four police.
A number of people are said to have received gunshot wounds.
Pro-independence demonstrations were also staged in a number of other centres.
It was the first major unrest since Indonesian police shot dead leading pro-independence figure Mako Tabuni in June, sparking a wave of violent protests.
