    Solomon Islands emergency crews head to tsunami devastated villages

    In Solomon Islands, emergency crews are on their way to the remote Santa Cruz islands after a tsunami caused serious damage to at least three villages.
    The one metre high tsunami was triggered by a 8.0 magnitude earthquake and travelled half a kilometre inland.
    Police say at least six people have died and three others have been injured.

      Australia offers more aid to tsunami-hit Solomons

      Australia will provide more support to the Solomon Islands government in the wake of last week's tsunami, which has now claimed at least 10 lives.

      Foreign Affairs Minister Bob Carr is in the Solomons today to discuss the recovery process and will visit tsunami-affected areas of the Santa Cruz Islands, where entire villages were washed away during the one-metre wave.
