Cabinet approves aid for Algeria

THE CABINET approved humanitarian aid for earthquake-hit Algeria on June 5, although the approval came after the military plane carrying the aid had already left.

This happened because the session was held on Thursday rather than the usual Wednesday, but the flight could not be delayed to await the formal decision.

The delivery worth Sk6.5 million (€158,000) includes 20 power generators, 3,000 wool blankets, 300 field beds, and almost 1,500 kilograms of medication.

The earthquake in Algeria on May 21 killed around 2,200 people, injured more than 10,000, and left thousands homeless.
