TIMIKA, Indonesia: Separatists in Indonesia’s restive eastern province of West Papua have shot dead at least four people, police said on Friday, identifying the victims as construction workers on a controversial and long-delayed road project.

Officials said the victims were working on the Trans Papua highway, a 4,300-km project criticised by rights groups as harming the environment and threatening the indigenous rights of Papuans who depend on the land.
