Two pro-independence activists being detained by police in the Indonesian province of Papua have gone on a hunger strike.
A police spokesman says the two activists, in police custody in the provincial capital of Jayapura, began refusing all foods on Saturday.
They also made a vow of silence and have refused to answer police questions.
The two were among 20 people arrested last week for taking part in an illegal flag-raising ceremony to commemorate the Papua day of independence.
All political activities supporting independence in the province have been suppressed since Papua became a part of Indonesia in 1969.
