The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is to help countries affected by the tsunami disaster to develop their telecoms infrastructures and introduce a tsunami early warning system for the Indian Ocean.

The UN telecoms body has so far allocated £140,000 to assess current telecoms infrastructures, prepare an infrastructure rehabilitation plan, and contribute to the development of the warning system.

The ITU said the work would focus on Indonesia, the Maldives and Sri Lanka, and that the disaster should lead to nations making sure the telecoms infrastructures were in place to help reduce the loss of life from future disasters.
