Disturbing scenes as anti-China riots erupt in the Solomon Islands with protesters BURNING DOWN a police station – as PM announces Australia is sending TROOPS

Australia will send troops to the Solomon Islands as the South Pacific nation descends into chaos following anti-China riots.

The Australian National Security Committee held crisis talks on Thursday afternoon after Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare asked the Australian Government for assistance under the 2017 bilateral security agreement.

Scott Morrison announced 23 Australian Federal Police officers are already on their way to support ‘riot control’ with a further 50 deployed to protect ‘critical infrastructure’.

In addition, 43 defence force personnel will also set to make the trip on Friday to support ‘critical infrastructure’ like the airport.
