sydney - Tens of thousands of inhabitants of the Fiji Islands still staying in shelters after their homes were destroyed last week by the cyclone Winston. The death toll rose Thursday to 42, but the authorities are confident that this number is increasing.

Some shelters have also been damaged and food supplies are running out in some places. International aid organizations say that the supply of goods is slow by damaged infrastructure such as jetties or connection devices.

Fiji live 900 000 people spread over more than three hundred islands. In some remote areas since the cyclone last Saturday have not been contacted, said a spokesperson for aid agency CARE Australia.
