China Donates $200,000 in Tsunami Aid to Burma - 2005-01-05


China says it has donated $200,000 in emergency aid to Burma for victims of last week's tsunami.

Chinese state-run media report a Chinese diplomat presented the donation to Burmese Social Welfare Minister Major General Sein Htwa in Rangoon.

The official Xinhua news agency says the donation is in addition to $20,000 given by the Chinese Red Cross to its Burmese counterpart.

The reports quote General Sein Htwa as saying that 64 people were killed and 29 villages destroyed in the December 26 tsunami. He also dismissed reports that Burma's death toll may be higher.

The United Nations death toll for Burma stands at 90.

The U.N. World Food Program said Tuesday that 30,000 tsunami victims in Burma need immediate aid, including food, clean water, shelter and medicine.
