SYDNEY, June 28 (Xinhua) -- Papua New Guinea police have clarified the progress of a probe into the killings of four Chinese in capital of Port Moresby, according to local newspaper The National.

National Capital District and Central divisional commander Jim Andrews said Friday that police have not arrested anyone but detained 12 people for questioning in connection with the killings happened on Monday.

Among the 12 are eight employees of the bakery where the four bodies were found.
