Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    Aid agencies struggling to reach disaster hit areas

    Apparently, aid agencies are having difficulties reaching some of the areas most affected by the tsunami tragedy.

    In the provincial capital of Banda Aceh, rotting bodies and piles of debris continued to clutter the streets, with the local government in disarray. Officials were burying dead bodies by the truckload, but they lacked the manpower to dig them all out and transport them to mass graves.
    Meanwhile the number of confirmed dead from the disaster has been confirmed at 124,000 so far, with that number expected, sadly to rise even further.
