    Indonesia has launched a new tsunami early warning system, designed to give people in coastal areas enough time to escape tsunamis before they reach land.

    But experts involved in setting up the system admit that some areas of the country, including the province of Aceh, are not fully protected by it.

    The project is a direct result of the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami which hit the country in 2004.

    A quarter of a million people died, more than half of them in Aceh.
