New Caledonia: What's behind the unrest? | TVNZ Breakfast

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
New Caledonia, a group of islands in the Pacific, has been gripped by unrest for nearly a week. The violence has left six people dead and led to the arrest of roughly 230. Around 250 New Zealand citizens are currently in the region.

French troops have been sent in large numbers to secure the route to Nouméa's La Tontouta airport. The unrest stems from a debate in Paris by the French government over proposed changes to New Caledonia's voting rights, reigniting tensions surrounding the island chain's potential independence.
