Unrest continues in Solomons with PM blaming foreign powers (Al Jazeera)

Foreign countries are responsible for stoking the disaffection that has led to three days of violent protests in the Solomon Islands, Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare said on Friday, as police pushed back protesters who again took to the streets.

Tear gas was deployed in Chinatown where looting and the burning of buildings continued on Friday morning, and pushed back a crowd that tried to reach Sogavare’s private residence, the AFP news agency reported, citing its journalists at the scene.
