A man was chopped to death with bush knives in the Tari-Pori electorate in Hela, Papua New Guinea on Saturday, Hela provincial police commander Mark Yangen said.
A long-standing tribal feud resulted in the man being chopped at Waralo village by three men from a rival tribe.
Police said the deceased had allegedly killed the father of one of the men who had attacked him on Saturday.
“This killing happened in another generation and it has been taken up by the another generation, Yangen said.
He said the situation was tense and police had attended to the incident and were monitoring and investigating.
“Police operations will continue until these people change their mindsets,” Yangen said.
