Indonesian Police ‘Confirm’ Type of Bullet Used In Papua Killings
Autopsy results show that the victims of the weekend killings near Timika in Papua were shot with 5.56-millimeter caliber weapons. But a police investigator said on Monday that this information would not help determine who the perpetrators might be. The 5.56-mm bullets, of which remnants were found in the victims’ bodies, are used in M-16, SS-1, Steyr and AK-47 long-barrel weapons, which are issued to the military and police.
