'Terror and fear' as bag of snakes thrown into dorm, students say
A group of students from West Papua say two bags of snakes were thrown into their dormitory in the middle of the night amid weeks of unrest.(ABC News) "We suspect that the aggressive snakes are venomous," Mr Giyai said, adding they are still looking for the snakes and"being very careful" not to get bitten. Lawyer Andy Irfan of the Federation of KontraS, which provides legal assistance to victims of violence, confirmed the incident and origin of the vision. Mr Irfan said while there were previously about 60 students living at the dorm, many had returned to Papua in recent weeks in fear following earlier attacks. The East Java Police urged the public not to be provoked by the alleged snake throwing incident. "Do not be provoked, because there are other parties trying to heat up the situation," police commissioner Frans Barung Mangera of the East Java Police told local media. Why thousands of Papuans have taken to the streets, torching government buildings and violently clashing with police. Indonesian news agency Antara reported that police were investigating the incident, but Mr Mangera said police had been guarding the building due to unrest last month and questioned how could it could have happened without police knowledge. "The police always monitor the dormitory. But that doesn't mean guaranteeing security for the students," Mr Irfan said. Mr Giyai said plain clothed police have been monitoring the activities of the students in the hostel for some weeks. "We feel pressured by their activities," he said, adding that they had seen men watching with binoculars after the snakes had been thrown, but no police responded to the incident. Indonesia's national police spokesperson said the matter was being handled by local police who did not respond to requests for comment from the ABC. Andreas Harsono, a researcher for Human Rights Watch in Indonesia, said his organisation had confirmed the incident but did not provide further details.
