JAKARTA (The Sydney Morning Herald / Pacific Media Watch): The detention of two French journalists in the Indonesian region of West Papua has taken a dangerous new turn, with local police suggesting the pair were present at an exchange of gunfire with a pro-independence group and should be charged with subversion.

Documentary filmmaker Thomas Dandois and camera operator Valentine Bourrat have been in immigration detention in the restive province for more than a week after being caught doing journalist work on tourist visas.
