Honiara’s Chinatown targeted as violent protests break out for second day in Solomon Islands


Protesters reportedly from neighbouring island, which opposed government’s 2019 decision to switch allegiance from Taiwan to China

Fresh protests have broken out in Solomon Islands’ capital Honiara, witnesses have said, a day after demonstrators attempted to storm parliament and topple prime minister Manasseh Sogavare.

Protesters defied a 36-hour lockdown imposed in the wake of Wednesday’s unrest and again took to the streets on Thursday targeting police and businesses in the capital’s Chinatown area, a Honiara resident told AFP.
