I've done just that. Also, there's this PhD student in a different
research group over here.
He's from Indonesia. Banda Atjeh to be more precise :( Apart from his
wife and kid, the
rest of his family is apparantly missing so far ... Help can hardly be

I'd like to quote a Dutch author "I don't like comparisons of suffering"
to English translation). Just decide on a per-incident basis.
