JAKARTA, May 22 (Xinhua) -- A 35-year old civilian identified as Sakeus was shot by an armed group and found dead on Thursday in Timika, Indonesia's easternmost province of Papua, the provincial police's spokesman Ahmad Kamal said on Friday.

The victim with wounds on his belly and neck was found around a mining area of mining company PT Freeport Indonesia in Papua's sub district of Tembagapura, Kamal was quoted by Indonesia's Antara news agency as saying.

The incident was reported by a joint police-military force's personnel who heard the burst of gunfire, he said, adding that following the report police personnel went to the location of the incident and rushed the victim to Tembagapura hospital.

The victim does not belong to PT Freeport Indonesia or a mining company consortium, said Kamal. Enditem
