Indonesia warned aid workers that
separatist rebels have taken shelter in camps for survivors and a
burst of violence between Christians and Hindus hit Sri Lanka, signaling a
potential resurgence of long-simmering rebellions in both tsunami-hit
countries that could hamper help for victims of the two-week-old disaster.
DISASTER ON DECEMBER 26, 2004:
Sumatra has accounted for about two-thirds of the 155,000 people known to
have died in the December 26 earthquake and tsunami that ravaged 11
countries in Asia and Africa. In Banda Aceh alone, 40,000 people were
killed and many more were left homeless and traumatized after giant waves
tore through the city.
Banda Aceh, January 10, 2005|10:07 Indian Standard Time: A strong
earthquake shook buildings and sent people scrambling from their homes
early on Monday in Banda Aceh, an Indonesian city devastated by the
massive quake and tsunami two weeks ago. There were no immediate reports
of injuries or damage from the temblor, which the US Geological Survey's
website said struck off the northern coast of Sumatra Island at 5:13 am.
The magnitude 6.2 quake was centered at a depth of about 14 kilometres
(8.9 miles) under the seabed in the Indian Ocean, about 60 kilometres (40
miles) southwest of Banda Aceh, the USGS said.
