On Dec 19 ferry WIRA GLORY was en route from Sibolga Port, Western Sumatra, to Gunungsitoli port, Nias Island, Indian ocean. One 56-year old passenger ran amok and attacked other passengers with knife and steel bar, killing two and seriously wounding one, who’s in critical condition. A security officer on board of the ferry ran to the scene and tried to calm down and disarm violent man, but to no avail, he was irresponsive. The guard fired warning shots, but the man didn’t respond, so finally, guard shoot him in legs and breast. The man tried to commit suicide by cutting his throat. He was disarmed and secured by guard and other passengers, but later died from blood loss.
