Students, laborers and civil servants yelled "free Papua" as they blocked roads near the state university in the provincial capital, Jayapura, police chief Lt. Col. Paulus Waterpauw said.

Some threw rocks at police and at the university, breaking windows and damaging a police vehicle, he said, adding that several people had been detained.
