The Anglican Church of Melanesia says a member of its Melanesian Brotherhood has been murdered in Popondetta in Oro Province in Papua New Guinea.

It says Brother Tolbon Diwaero was killed late on Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning by unidentified persons.

The PNG regional secretary of the Brotherhood, Brother Kelliot Betu, says it appears Mr Diwaero got caught in a clash between two warring groups.
