Indonesian officials say an early warning system failed to alert locals before a tsunami1 wiped out about ten villages on the tiny Mentawai Islands. More than 270 people have been killed in the three-metre tsunami with another 400 still missing. Technicians responsible for the early warning system say crucial offshore2 buoys3 had been vandalized.

And still in Indonesia, and villagers are trying to return to their homes on the slopes of Mount Merapi after the erupting volcano killed 28 people. A further 90 people are being treated for burns. Thousands of people have been evacuated4 from the area.

Jewish extremists and Israeli Arabs have clashed during a political march in Israel’s north. Hundreds of riot police used tear gas and stun5 grenades to break up the groups in the region of Haifa. A small group of far right Jews had tried to hold a rally in the Arab-dominated city before groups of young Arabs hurled6 stones and abuse  at the demonstrators.

Britain’s transport secretary says security checks at British airports may be eased. Philip Hammond was responding to comments from the British Airways7 chair Martin Broughton, who said many measures were completely redundant8. Mr Broughton said the UK had kowtowed to US demands.

And Argentina’s former president Nestor Kirchner has died. Mr Kirchner, who was also the husband of the current President Cristina Fernandez, had remained a major power broker9 since he stepped down in 2007. The 60-year-old died suddenly from heart problems.
