Deal signed for early warning system

The Scotsman's Story

"The massive earthquake off the Sumatran coast yesterday came only a matter of days after Indonesia and Germany signed an agreement to install a tsunami early warning system in the Indian Ocean.

"UNESCO, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation, has also proposed a £16 million network of deep-sea buoys in the Indian Ocean and regional communications centres that would be operational by mid-2006."
