Ambae residents return but problems remain on volcano island

From , 4:04 pm on 2 November 2017

Residents from Vanuatu's Ambae may have returned to their island, but their problems are far from over.

Forced to flee to neighbouring islands when Ambae's volcano erupted more than a month ago, the residents were allowed to return home from evacuation centres last week.

But now they're having to contend with contaminated water supplies, missing livestock, smothered crops, and a drought.
