Tsunami survivors reject new homesTopics: Southeast Asia Earthquake and Tsunami
THOUSANDS of Indonesians left homeless by the tsunami will be able to move into newly-finished barracks next week, but despite the promise of shelter, food and water, many instead want to return to the windswept piles of rubble they once called home.
At Lambaro, 8km inland from the ravaged shoreline of Aceh province, the last nails were being hammered home on a series of cramped, wooden structures designed to house families for more than a year.
Across the region, similar provisions were being made to accommodate about one quarter of the 400,000 people whose homes were destroyed when the waves rolled in, killing more than 240,000 Indonesians.
