A UAE Red Crescent Society team arrived here from Indonesian capital Jakarta to oversee distribution of relief aid, purchased from local market, to the victims of the tsunami tidal waves disaster. UAE Charge d' Affairs Ahmed Al Khaja said that around 15 trucks representing the first batch of a convoy of 50 relief trucks would be distributed to the affected populations.



Al Khaja announced that a second UAE aid plane had already landed at Sumatra airport.

He indicated that Indonesian Vice-president Yusouf Kala was briefed on relief operations being carried out by the RCS.

Around 170 tonnes of different relief items have been distributed in cooperation with Sri Lankan Red Cross. The team has toured the tsunami-hit areas to inspect magnitude of damages and assess needs of these areas. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
