5/28/2006 World News: Indonesian Rescue Workers Search for Quake Survivors in Java


Indonesian Quake: Indonesian rescue workers are digging through rubble to search for survivors of Saturday's powerful earthquake on Java island that has killed more than four thousand people.
Meteorologists say more than 450 aftershocks have shaken the region since the six-point-three magnitude quake rocked the densely populated area. The strongest aftershock was measured at five-point-two.
Most of the casualties occurred in the town of Bantul, south of Yogyakarta city.

East Timor: East Timorese gangs have gone on a rampage in the capital, Dili, for a second day, defying foreign peacekeepers sent to the country to stop the violence.
Gang members set fire to homes, businesses and vehicles today (Sunday), and attacked their rivals with machetes and other weapons. Smoke was seen rising from several neighborhoods.
Thousands of Dili residents fled the violence, leaving much of the city deserted. A VOA correspondent in Dili says hundreds of people sought shelter in a church, and a priest described the situation as desperate.

Israel – Lebanon: Security officials in Lebanon say Israeli warplanes have attacked a Palestinian militant base in eastern Lebanon.
The strike today (Sunday) came hours after the Israeli military said a soldier was wounded by rockets fired from Lebanon into an army base in northern Israel. Lebanese security officials say Israel responded to the rocket attack by firing missiles at a military base run by the Syrian-backed Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, near the town of Luci in the Bekaa Valley.
