In the latest incident, seventeen men were arrested in Levuka yesterday for a confrontation which led up to three police officers sustaining injuries.

Three officers had initially attended a report on Saturday where 20 men were drinking alcohol in Levuka town after 7 pm.

They asked the men to clear the area but were threatened and chased.
