Buildings set ablaze in Solomon Islands in anti-government protests

TRT World says Several buildings have been set alight in the Solomon Islands’ capital Honiara as thousands of protestors swarmed the city’s Chinatown district in a second day of anti-government riots. 

Eyewitnesses and local media on Thursday reported crowds had defied a government lockdown to take to the streets. 

Live images showed several buildings engulfed in flames and plumes of thick black smoke billowing high above the capital.

The Solomon Islands imposed a 36-hour lockdown on Wednesday in the capital Honiara after protesters calling for the prime minister to resign looted stores and set fire to buildings, including in the Pacific nation’s parliament.
