Tsunami-hit Aceh recovers well

Observers highlight reconstruction of hard-hit Indonesian province as rare success story.

    The Indonesian province of Aceh was one of the hardest-hit areas when the Asian tsunami struck in December 2004.

    Since then, international donors have provided about $7bn in aid to the region.

    Now most of Aceh is back on its feet, and observers are highlighting its reconstruction as a rare success story.
