Indonesia tsunami aid slowed by poor weather
Bad weather is again obstructing efforts to get aid to the survivors of Monday's tsunami in Indonesia.
Heavy rain and high tides are making it hard for boats to deliver supplies to the isolated Mentawai islands off the west coast of Sumatra.
More than 400 people are confirmed dead, but many bodies have yet to be recovered from coastal areas and more than 300 people are still missing.
Meanwhile, the Mount Merapi volcano has erupted for a third time, with local people reportedly saying this was louder and stronger than the previous eruption on Tuesday.
