2023 Mar 04, 16:06,

 One soldier and one civilian were killed in Indonesia's eastern province of Central Papua after being shot by armed separatists.

Military spokesperson in the province Herman Taryaman told local media that the soldier died of a gunshot wound sustained during the rebel attack, which occurred when a number of soldiers were evacuating a civilian already shot dead by the separatists in a village in the province's district of Puncak.

Separatists in Indonesia's easternmost region have been seeking independence through guerrilla wars in the past several decades, targeting soldiers, police personnel as well as civilians.

Three days ago, a soldier was killed and three others wounded in a rebel attack in the district of Yahukimo regency.
