SIEV sinking out of mind
22 October 2003
We've just commemorated the anniversary of the Bali bombing but the sinking of the SIEV-X two years ago on October 18 has apparently gone unnoticed in the Australian media. It occurred under suspicious circumstances and led to the deaths of 353 people, including 146 children (remember those dear little girls?). This gives a hollow ring to the expression "Lest we forget".
