TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A separatist group (KKB) again attacked the Muara Perairan task force post of the TNI Marine Infantry Battalion 3 in Kalikote, Nduga district, Papua province, on Friday evening, leaving one soldier dead and another injured.

The incident came to light only on Saturday morning, and the victims were immediately flown to Timika, Papua, on an Indonesian Air Force (TNI AU) Caracal helicopter, spokesperson for the Cendrawasih Regional Military Command, Lieutenant Colonel Herman Taryaman, said here on Saturday.
