Papua violence 120607

It's not the first time the Indonesian province of Papua has been rocked by violence. Here Papuan demonstrators erupt in a short-lived celebration as they raise the banned Morning Star flag on a bamboo pole in Timika on Dec. 1 2011, the 50th anniversary of the region's claim to independence. Indonesian police and troops opened fire soon after.
