The Old Bali Blog « Snuff it or get snuffed: Illegal forest fires burn out of control on Riau

The National Police Chief is fuming over the illegal forest fires burning in Riau that have blanked out parts of Singapore and Malaysia - and caused respiratory illnesses in more than 56,000 residents.

The Man's not kidding around. Of the slashers-and-burners, he says:

"Just shoot them."

And if any security or government officials are involved in shady forest-clearance too?

"Shoot them as well."

One way of dealing with the problem.
