No early PNG meeting likely for Julia Gillard

Multiple arrows fired with extreme prejudice


BY ANY criterion, this is a graphic and shocking photograph.

It shows a wounded PNG highlands man receiving surgical treatment after being pierced by multiple arrows in April this year.

The medical team is clearly focussed on analysing the extent of the wounds and planning a recovery strategy.

Albert Speer MBE advises that there are no other particulars nor any identification of where the photograph was taken.

He’s asking readers to help with details about who the photographer might be.

Albert’s also interested in getting some information about the hospital, as he started some of the early medical services for Tari in years gone by.

Giaman! Not a drop of blood anywhere! Angle of arrows wrong for a standing target, unless from close range. If struck at close range the bloke would be dead. Get Denis Samin to comment, he would know.
