UN Travel Ban Lifted on Relief Workers in Aceh - 2005-01-18


UN officials coordinating tsunami relief efforts in Indonesia's hard-hit Aceh region have lifted a 24-hour travel ban on staff.

The United Nations says it believes conditions are safe for aid workers, for now.

The ban was imposed Monday after the Danish government said it had information that terrorists were planning an attack against foreign aid workers in Aceh province, where Muslim separatists have battled the government for decades.

The death toll from the tsunami now stands at around 170,000, after Sri Lanka added more than 7,000 victims to its tally on Monday.

The Sri Lanka toll of 38,000 fatalities is second only to Indonesia, where nearly 115,000 are confirmed dead.

Information for this report is provided by AP and AFP.
