Probe into Indonesia jet crash hampered Soldiers hunted on beaches and in the sea on Saturday for the black box from an Indonesian jetliner that crashed with 102 people aboard, but ocean depths of more than 1 1/2 kilometers (0.93 miles) were hampering the search. Experts said authorities had to find the box -- also know as a flight data recorder -- or significant pieces of wreckage such as the engines, cockpit and wings to determine what caused the Boeing 737 to crash.

Anarchy reigns in West Lombok Back to Lombok after almost two years - my last visit to this beautiful and quiet island east of the messy Bali dates back to January 2005 - I noticed that certain things had changed, and too bad not only for the good of the island. It has nothing to do with increased tourist numbers to the island or the fact that big positive points are to be awarded.

Homeless adrift a year after Boxing Day tsunami Billions of dollars have been pledged and thousands of new homes built but the city of Banda Aceh is still a scene of devastation after the Boxing Day tsunami of last year. Tens of thousands are surviving in shanty towns of scrap wood and metal churned up by the terrifying force of the sea. There are 67,500 still living in tents. More than 200,000 survivors are thought to be staying with friends or relatives. Along the coast, towns and villages are nothing more than swampland and rubble. Survivors are jammed together in windowless plywood barracks hurriedly built by the army.

Disaster of man's making now threatens Sumatra Cut Anita peered from the open flap of her sunbaked tent one recent day. She watched keenly as a carpenter hammered a wood plank less than five feet away. Another sawed a board in two, freeing the sweet fragrance of forest hardwood. Her new home was taking shape before her, and she dared not leave. "Someone else might take it," the doleful, wide-eyed woman said from the Red Cross tent erected on the concrete foundation of her former home, which was destroyed by the Dec. 26 tsunami.

"Death came from the sea," said Satya Kumari, a construction worker living on the outskirts of the former French enclave of Pondicherry in India.
