After more fighting in Wabag at the weekend, at least twenty people are confirmed to have died in election-related violence since vote counting began last month Papua New Guinea's Enga province.

RNZ Pacific's Johnny Blades reports that the groups fighting have been using military assault weapons, including AR15s and Russian-made AK47s.
