Rioters in the Solomon Islands torched buildings in the country’s capital of Honiara, setting the city’s Chinatown ablaze on November 25, 2021. It comes a day after anti-government protests broke out to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare. The unrest is reportedly fuelled by discontent over the central government’s perceived neglect of the less-developed island of Malaita, and a decision to switch diplomatic allegiance from Taiwan to Beijing in 2019.
