Controversy over Papua New Guinea gas plant
Energy giant ExxonMobil has suspended work on a liquefied natural gas plant in Papua New Guinea after four local villagers were killed in a tribal dispute.
The plant which will liquefy and load gas for export is expected to become a major pillar of the country's economy.
But some people in the region are living in extreme poverty and activists say these large-scale projects will only benefit the rich instead of the poor, local population.
