Five European divers who recently went missing in Indonesia have been found alive by police. The divers disappeared after being swept away by a huge wave off the coast of Indonesia.
Three of the divers were from the UK, and one was from each of France and Sweden. They were found after the local police conducted a large search of the area.
The local chief of police reported that the group were found on an island that was 20 miles of the coast of Indonesia.
"They were found alive and are seeking medical assistence" said Ernest Leandowski, husband of one of the British divers.
The divers went missing after diving in Komodo National Park, in an area known for being quite dangerous. The national park is very popular within the diving community.
2.Critics of Robert Mugabe speak at Africa World Economic Forum
June 7, 2008
African politicians met at the 2008 World Economic Forum on Africa, where they discussed a variety of issues, including the current situation in Zimbabwe.
Simba Makoni, a former finance minister in Zimbabwe, said the chance of a free election in Zimbabwe was low: “Conditions have been created in the country as a whole, but particularly in the rural areas, where there is no prospect of any semblance of a free and fair election.”
The Secretary General of the main opposition party in Zimbabwe, the Movement for Democratic Change, also criticized the upcoming elections, saying that they were “merely legitimizing the kleptocracy.”
He continued his speech to the forum. "The regime is increasing the decibels of insanity. At every level it is telling the international community in a loud and clear voice that it is not prepared to play by the rules, it is not prepared to listen to logic, and most importantly it is not prepared to listen to democracy and the voice of its people.”
