مخاوف من حدوث انهيارات أرضية في بابوا غينيا الجديدة

By Duncan Mil

May 28, 2024 - تم إجلاء حوالي 7.900 شخص من القرى النائية في ظل استمرار تدحرج الصخور والحطام إلى أسفل الجبل بعد أربعة أيام من الانهيار الأولي لجانب الجبل مما أدى إلى دفن ما يقدر بأكثر من 2.000 شخص.

With rescue and relief efforts hampered by the remote location, a severed road link, heavy rainfall and nearby tribal violence, Enga provincial administrator Sandis Tsaka warned the disaster could yet worsen.

“The landslide is still active, as people are digging through the rocks, more is still coming down,” Tsaka warned.

Australia has pledged millions of dollars worth of aid, including emergency relief supplies such as shelters, hygiene kits, and support for women and children.

China’s President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Joe Biden have offered their assistance in a show of global solidarity.
