STORYLINE:

Hundreds of people have died and thousands more have been displaced following the tsunami that struck densely-populated coastal areas along Indonesia’s Sunda Strait late last year.

The United Nations stands ready to support the Indonesia Government and other partners in providing emergency relief.

Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, today (3 Jan) said the aid effort is intensifying. He said, “thousands of people from the Indonesian Government, Red Cross, NGOs and others are working to respond and are also distributing emergency supplies, such as food, water, sanitation, and blankets.”

The deadly tsunami is believed to have been triggered by an underwater landslide following an eruption at the Anak Krakatau volcano on 29 December 2017.
