Aceh's daily miracle

In a truly inspirational example of the 'daily miracle' that is newspaper production Aceh's daily newspaper was back on the streets just days after the tsunami killed many staff.
"On January 1, just six days after the disaster, Serambi Indonesia was back in circulation, albeit on a drastically reduced scale. It is now printing 10,000 copies a day, compared with 100,000 daily before the disaster. It has been reduced from a 16-page to an eight-page edition, as there are not enough journalists to produce the original size. The new edition is being run by 10 people - six journalists and four production staff - and is being printed in Lhokseumawe, the second city of Aceh province, and distributed free. "
