Indonesia police admit using snake to terrorise Papuan man


JAKARTA (AP): Indonesian police have acknowledged officers terrorised a Papuan man with a live snake after a video of the incident circulated online showing the man screaming in fear and his interrogator laughing.

Police in Indonesia’s easternmost Papua region apologised but also tried to justify the officers’ actions by saying the snake was not venomous and they had not resorted to beating the man, who was suspected of theft.
