(Conversation in Tonga most certainly went up a level!)
Tonga's parliament has passed a law to raise the drinking age from 18 to 21 years.

It cited escalating violence among teenagers as the main reason for the change.

Health Minister Lord Tu'i'afitu told parliament he is convinced alcohol consumption is the root cause of the problem.

Drew Havea, president of the Tongan National Youth Congress, says it is not just young people who are causing trouble.
