China boosts fast-growing tsunami disaster fund

As the world mourns the victims of Asia’s tsunami disaster, China has announced that they will contribute 60.5 million in relief funds. According to AFP: “China added 60.5 million dollars to the half billion dollars pledged by the world’s rich nations. China’s politically significant donation was the third biggest so far from any national government after Britain and Sweden.”

Updated news reports say that Bush has now increased the US pledge to $350 million, up from $35 million promised earlier.
