Papua New Guinea At least two people are dead after violent rioting over the past few days which has crippled Papua New Guinea's main industrial centre of Lae on the country's north coast.

The government is warning it may have to declare a state of emergency.

Ironically the rioting was sparked by youths concerned at the city's growing lawlessness.

OK Dr Wendy - 'fess up!  What was your real reason for skipping out on Lae?
