Aid Agencies: Burma May Have Been Spared Major Damage from Tsunami - 2005-01-05


United Nations and private aid agencies say Burma appears to have been spared major damage from the tsunami that devastated several countries in southern Asia last week.

The agencies, including Doctors Without Borders and the International Red Cross, are in the midst of an assessment of villages in southern Burma most affected by the tsunami. The agencies say they have yet to see any serious damage.

Tuesday U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said satellite photographs suggest Burma may have escaped the worst of the tsunami.

The United Nations death toll for Burma stands at 90, while Burma's military government has said up to 64 people were killed in the December 26 tsunami.

Meanwhile, China says it has donated $200,000 in emergency aid to Burma for victims of the tsunami.

Chinese state-run media say the donation is in addition to $20,000 given by the Chinese Red Cross to its Burmese counterpart.
