A helicopter was deliberately set on fire by armed militants in Ilaga Airport, Kabupaten Puncak, Papua.
Local media reported that the helicopter belonged to PT Esra, which seems unlikely as this operator is not known to fly Mi-8 helicopters.
The Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management is known to operated several Mi-8 helicopters but it has not been confirmed that the burned Mi-8 was indeed operated by them.
