Public chase killers and hack leg off one

Angry bystanders chopped off a suspect's leg after a gang shot a shop manager dead in front of his wife in Papua New Guinea.

After Crystal Trading manager James Hana was murdered yesterday in the sleepy island township of Kavieng, members of the public chased the five-strong gang and used a machete to sever the leg off one of the suspects.

The leg is completely severed, a police spokesman told The National newspaper.

Hana's wife and an employee had been held-up by an armed gang as they opened for business in the morning. When Hana came downstairs to investigate, he was shot at close range.

Police said one suspect was in police custody while the suspect with a severed limb was in a critical condition.

How about that for instant justice.
