They will instead focus on bringing aid to survivors, an effort which has been hampered by torrential rains. The death toll from Wednesdays quake in the city of Padang, Sumatra, is expected to be in the thousands. The UN said 1,100 people are known to have died so far. Hiroaki Sano, head of the Japanese Disaster Rescue team, said: They (the Indonesian government and the UN) believe we should switch from emergency searches to rebuilding. The government estimates some $600m (376m) is needed to repair infrastructure. Also pledging today to rebuild their area were survivors of the Samoan tsunami. A thousand people gathered at a church on the South Pacific island to mourn lost relatives, following last Tuesdays disaster which killed 177 people. Focus: survivors with aid ExpatOAPkillswifewithashotgun A BRITISH pensioner shot his wife in the head in their Spanish home then turned the weapon on himself, police said today. David John Rouse, 70, killed Heather Anne Rouse, who was in her mid-fifties, with a shotgun as she slept in their house in San Fulgencio, Costa Blanca. He is then said to have left food and water for their pet dog and cat, put his ID on a table and used a stick to pull the trigger on himself. No note was left at the scene and the couples friends said they were baffled by the crime. Is there enough for me? This polar bear is more like the picnic-loving Yogi Bear as he pokes his head through a ships porthole in search of lunch. The curious bear smelt cauliflower soup cooking in a tourist ships galley near Svalbard in the Arctic Ocean. UnexplodedNaziDoodlebugfound A V-1 FLYING bomb more than 60 years old has been found in western Germany, complete with its 600kg explosive payload. Adolf Hitler terrorised London with more than 2,400 of the rockets, nicknamed Doodlebugs, in 1944 and 1945. The V-1 crashed in the Eifel mountains, 90 miles from Bonn. It is thought the rocket may have malfunctioned and crashed. Girls, 14, jump to death from bridgeTWO 14-year-old girls died after jumping off a bridge in an apparent suicide pact. The teenagers were seen holding hands as they plunged from the 125ft- high Erskine bridge, a notorious suicide spot near Glasgow, last night. A massive search opera- tion was launched and the girls bodies were later pulled from the River Clyde and taken to the S o u t h e r n G e n e r a l Hospital. A police spokesman said: Between 20.50 and 22.30, the bodies of two females were recovered from the River Clyde. Inquiries are continu- ing to establish the identi- ties. We ask anyone who was in the area at the time to call us. A Coastguard source said: The information that we have is that two teenag- ers held hands as they jumped from the bridge. It is very rarely anyone sur- vives a fall like that. The Erskine Bridge is one of the countrys high- est bridges and connects Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire. BY MARK BLUNDEN Greeksocialistsstormtopollvictory GREEK Socialists were celebrating today after storming to a landslide victory in the countrys snap general election. The outgoing prime minister, Costas Karamanlis, congratulated George Papandreou, leader of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (Pasok), and resigned as leader of the conservative New Democracy party.
