Election Win Sparks Unrest in Solomon Islands

The election of veteran politician Manasseh Sogavare as the Solomon Islands' new prime minister sparked violent protests in the capital Honiara Wednesday, with riot police deployed in a bid to maintain order.

As a result for safety reasons,  please be informed our sub-agents have closed their office as of 14:00 today due to some unauthorized rallies/protests happening at Point Cruz and at Burnscreek areas that the police are currently dispersing.  With current police visibility, we expect that the situation will be resolve soonest.
