Ces risques persistent même après l’amélioration des conditions climatiques.

SYDNEY — Two of Australia’s nine high-security immigration detention centers are being closed in what the government says is a vindication of its tough border protection policies.

But the network of detention centers also has a troubled history, including escapes and hunger strikes.

New Zealand is contributing $1.5 million to help recovery efforts following the devastating tsunami that struck the Sunda Strait, in Indonesia, Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters says.

The funding is being directed to the International Federation of the Red Cross (ICRC) Emergency Appeal.

“As a near neighbour and close friend of Indonesia, New Zealand understands the dreadful aftermath of this tsunami which compounds a number of significant disasters that have impacted Indonesia in recent months,” Mr Peters says.
