MELBOURNE (Reuters) -- Police from Papua New Guinea joined an Australian-led effort to help restore calm in the Solomon Islands on Friday, where the capital Honiara was placed under curfew following three days of violent protests in the South Pacific island nation.

Some 50 officers from the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary arrived in Honiara, a day after Australia sent its own forces to the capital, both in response to a request by the Solomon Islands government.
