Taiwan Quick Take: Taiwan flies in supplies

Taiwanese military aircraft have flown 10 sorties over the past week to deliver relief supplies to Indonesia to help with post-earthquake rehabilitation work, Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials said yesterday. The goods included tents, drinking water, foodstuffs and medical supplies, the officials said. Taiwan sent a team to assist in search and rescue missions immediately after a magnitude 6.3 earthquake rattled Java on May 27. Medical personnel organized by Taiwan's International Health Action have also traveled to Bantul, the quake's epicenter, to help injured victims.
