"Unknown" tsunami material unearthed
Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has announced that dozens of back-up tapes with information about how government offices dealt with the Asian Tsunami disaster have been discovered.
They were found in a cupboard in the cellar of the government offices.
The Prime Minister says they are not in a state to be read, but can be restored, and says it is thought they contain information on emails sent during the time of the catastrophe.
He has asked the chairman of the Swedish Tsunami Commission to judge whether it had the information when it looked into the government’s response to the disaster.
543 Swedes were among the 176 thousand people killed by the tsunami at the end of 2004 and several Social Democrat ministers and government workers were criticised by the commission.
