Mudflow disaster in East Java, Indonesia

Houses flooded with mud in Sidoarjo in Indonesia's East Java province on September 27, 2006. Environmental group Greenpeace on Wednesday dumped 700 kg (1,540 lb) of mud at the welfare ministry in protest over the government's handling of a mudflow disaster. The mud has swamped four villages over an area larger than Monaco, displacing more than 10,000 people.
