After a deadly tsunami struck one week ago, the UN continues to provide aid and technical assistance in the wake of the natural disaster which has displaced at least 5,500 people in the Solomon Islands, the UN’s OCHA said. According to Government figures, 35 people have died after last week’s tsunami which was caused by an earthquake measuring 8.1 on the Richter scale. Approximately 1,500 people who were forced to flee their homes are now residing in 12 camps around the town of Gizo. (UN News)
