Timika ambush death toll rises to three

Markus Makur,
A police officer was found dead Monday on a section of the road connecting Timika and PT Freeport Indonesia’s Grassberg mine in Tembagapura in Papua, after being declared missing following an attack on a convoy of police troops on Sunday.

The body of Second Brig. Marson was discovered in a ravine in Mile 64 of the road in Tembagapura district, Papua Police chief Insp. Gen. Bagus Ekodanto said Monday.

Marson was among the police personnel flanking Freeport security guards who were ambushed by a group of armed people on Sunday. Freeport security guard Markus Rante Allo was killed in the attack.

Papua Police deputy chief Brig. Gen. Riady Koni said the police found Marson’s body after sifting through the site of the ambush. They had discovered Marson’s firearms shortly after the attack. Freeport’s Australian employee Drew Nicholas Grant was killed in a separate ambush on Saturday.
