A police spokesperson said the death came during a gunfire exchange in Wamena on Friday, which also injured an officer and a civilian.

Meanwhile, two people were arrested for looting in Manokwari, the provincial capital where the parliament building was set ablaze last week.

A third person was arrested in the city for setting fire to an Indonesian flag.
