Reports are emerging from Buka that gunshots have been fired between two factions, one from mailand Bougainville and the other from small Buka.

The commotion is taking place on Buka wharf where the faction from the mainland are still holding on 2 or 3 Peter Sharp’s vessels. There is disagreement from the faction from small Buka about the demands being made of Peter Sharp by the other faction.

One small group want Peter Sharp’s ships in Buka to be released while the majority want the ships to remain in Buka until those that lost their lives in the recent tragedy are compensated and the results of the official investigations are made known to the public.
