Manam evacuation underway

On what was to be a visit to see past EU funded projects in Bogia, the trip, organised by the International Office Of Migration (IOM), ended up seeing the transportation of over 200 people (mainly mothers, girls, children and the elderly). These are people mostly from Dugulava, Warisi, Bokure and Kuluguma, who are from high risk villages as they sit directly in the path of the anticipated lava flow.

Organisers say more than 100 households are still to be evacuated.
