Officials said a leaf hut next to the main parliament building was torched by “three youth protesters, not by police tear gas”. Footage by mavspeterseda shows the structure burning.
The Solomon Islands Herald reported schools in the capital closed early on Wednesday for the “safety of their students.” It was reported a police station and other buildings had also been torched as protesters moved across the city.
