In Papua New Guinea, tribal wars hamper recovery from deadly landslide

On May 24, a landslide devastated a whole village in one of the poorest regions of Papua New Guinea, a country north of Australia that's home to 10 million inhabitants. According to the UN, 670 people were killed but very few bodies have been found so far. A week after the disaster, our Asia correspondent Constantin Simon went to meet survivors – some of who are children who lost their entire families. Assistance is slow to arrive and is complicated by the ongoing violence. Papua New Guinea’s Enga province, where the disaster hit, is ravaged by tribal wars.
