Perak to have liaison officer for families of missing 26 - The Star

IPOH: May 15, 2008

The Perak government will send a representative as a liaison officer to keep families informed on search and rescue efforts for the 26 missing tourists in China, says exco member Thomas Su.

The 26 elderly Malaysian tourists have been missing since Monday’s devastating earthquake that hit south-western Sichuan province as the death toll rose to nearly 15,000 and thousands were reported buried under the rubble of collapsed buildings and landslides.

Malaysian Consul-General in Kunming Ayauf Bachi said that while the fate of the group is still not known, there have been no reports of Malaysian casualties.
