The United Nations wants major donors to allocate nearly $1 billion of promised monies for spending on basic needs for victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami over the next six months.

The so-called "flash appeal", launched by Secretary-General Kofi Annan in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta on Thursday, is aimed at getting commitments for specific projects from the more than $3 billion worth of aid promised and from new contributions.

The appeal, spelled out in a 95-page report, is mainly for Indonesia ($371 million), Maldives ($66.6 million), Seychelles ($8.9 million), Somalia ($10 million) and Sri Lanka ($167 million). The remainder is to be spread throughout the region:
