Year After Deadly Tsunami, Reconstruction in Thailand is Swift, but Uneven
Thailand's Andaman Coast, which suffered extensive casualties and damage,
has been a vast construction site for much of the past year. But families face
substandard housing and land disputes.
In Asia's hardest-hit area of Banda Aceh, Indonesia where the tsunami left 600,000
people homeless, residents continue rebuilding the remnants of their villages.
Two aid experts just returned from the region, Eric Schwartz, the United Nations
deputy special envoy for tsunami recovery, and Charles McCormack, president of
Save the Children, discuss relief efforts.
