Papua New Guinea’s PM: Disasters caused by extraordinary weather


Prime Minister James Marape has blamed “extraordinary rainfall” and changes to weather patterns as the causes of the country’s disasters, including the landslide that may have killed thousands in Enga Province last week. Marape estimates that over 2,000 people have died. Gorethy Kenneth, a journalist with Papua New Guinea’s Post-Courier newspaper, has more details from the capital, Port Moresby.
