Retired colonel threatens to use necessary actions

Retired colonel threatens to use necessary actions

The retired colonel who claims to have seized control of Papua New Guinea's military has threatened to use "necessary actions" to resolve the country's political stand off.

Colonel Yaura Sasa has told reporters in Port Moresby that soldiers under his control fired several shots this morning as they stormed barracks and took defence force commander Francis Agwi hostage under house arrest.

The former defense attaché to Indonesia said the action did not amount to a military mutiny or takeover, but said he had been appointed commander by former Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare.

He called on Sir Michael and Prime Minister Peter O'Neill to return to parliament to resolve what he called the country's constitutional impasse within seven days.
