Aussie trekkers attacked in Papua New Guinea, guides hacked to death
The trekking group, including eight Australians and a New Zealander, were attacked by bandits on the Black Cat Track in Morobe province in the country's remote and mountainous north on Tuesday.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has recommended trekkers avoid the Black Cat track.

Just FYI, the audience outside of Oceania might not know PNG stands for Papua New Guinea.

AFAIR even the Army has had some little skirmishes around those parts in the not terribly distant past.

A few generations ago, eating the body at the funeral was part of the feast.

Yeah, course there is.
Just a thin small side that doesn't balance out what we owe them.
Some of them collaborated with the Japs.
Not all that fucking many.
Some of them carried our ancestors back from certain death into safety.

I'd just go with leaving them the fuck alone, and maybe not raping their country for gold and palm oil, in return for paying off their corrupt "leaders".

Don't know if I'm imagining it, but all I read about lately is westerners being murdered by natives in savage countries. Only yesterday an English woman and her mother were killed while on holiday in Turkey. Won't be long before western tourists won't be able to travel anywhere outside civilized countries.

Kinda ironic how the guides were killed but the trekkers were not

Were the guides aware of the threat/danger, were they blindly following orders?

Sounds like it was due to jealousy over making money off the trekkers, by being a porter, the trail goes through several villages.

Sounds like a real Nightmare and like a Screen-book for a High-Tension Horror Movie!

I am sorry for this People but they had enough of Signs to avoid that Area,
i love trekking and Backpacking too but PNG is not suitable for this,
the People there live in a different Time (in their own)

Good point, perhaps they were upholding tribal laws rather than being jealous though
