South Korea offers Ketsana aid

South Korea will airlift about 7 tonnes of supplies to Cambodia today in support of ongoing Typhoon Ketsana relief efforts. The US$200,000 donation of canned tuna, powdered milk, soap and other items follows a joint agreement on recovery efforts signed last month, the ministry of national defence in Seoul said. According to Cambodia’s National Committee for Disaster Management, 43 people died and 67 others were severely injured when Ketsana swept through the country in late September, causing damage in excess of $140 million.
