Huge brawl erupts in central Nuku’alofa

    A mass brawl broke out in central Nuku’alofa yesterday Saturday 30, Police have confirmed this morning but could not give further "details".

    Police allegedly met with difficulties in trying to break up the fight. An unconfirmed report says it followed with call for Tonga’s military force for back-up.

    Comments on social media claim the brawl has led to some of the shop owners in Nuku’alofa to close their doors to avoid the risk of looting and violence.

    The brawl involved people who indentified themselves as students of some of the high schools in Tongatapu but people at the scene said majority of them were no longer students.  

    The cause of the fight is still unclear but many claimed it was part of recent violence that involved ex-students and supporters of high school rugby teams.

    Tonga's Acting Police Commissioner, Pelenatita Fe'ao, says there was a fight but they "don't have details at this point in time". .
