67 killed in PNG earthquake


SYDNEY: At least 67 people were killed by an earthquake that devastated Papua New Guinea’s remote highlands last week, the Red Cross said yesterday, with thousands more homeless and without food and clean water. The recovery effort has been slow as aid workers grapple with blocked roads and power outages to reach villages after the 7.5-magnitude quake. Terrified locals in the Southern Highlands, Western, Enga and Hela provinces have also been hit by aftershock­s including two 6.0-magnitude tremors yesterday.
