Law and order has completely broken down in the Solomon Islands. Murders go unpunished and the government is being held to ransom by police gunmen. A virtual civil war erupted throughout the islands two years ago when militants from rival ethnic groups took up arms. In a peace deal, militants were made Special Constables but now their money has dried up and gangsters rule. The country is virtually bankrupt. Funded by EU money, a British Policeman has been brought in to restore order after the last Commissioner was murdered.
