Politics and tsunamis

Indonesia warned the thousands of aid workers providing relief to earthquake and tsunami victims in devastated Aceh province on Tuesday not to venture beyond two large cities because of militant threats

The government of Indonesia, like that of Sri Lanka, is actively blocking aid and help from reaching their own citizens, if those citizens happen to live in areas where insurgents are numerous. And you can be assured the governments are stealing as much of the relief supplies as they can. Yuck.
