View descriptionShare

New Zealanders stranded in New Caledonia may have to endure a few more days of riots and civil unrest. 

The main international airport in Nouméa remains closed with all commercial flights suspended. 

The French president has called another meeting with defence and security council to discuss what to do next.  

Europe correspondent Catherine Field told Mike Hosking that the government's made it clear the airport won't reopen before Thursday. 

She says more than 60 barricades on the road to the airport have been cleared, but protesters are warning they'll put up more.
