Jakarta  (ANTARA News) - Three British Air Force planes have landed at Jakarta`s Halim Perdanakusuma airport carrying humanitarian aid for victims of last week`s earthquake and tsunami in Central Sulawesi.

British Ambassador to Indonesia Moazzam Malik said, the aircraft carried tents, tarpaulins, drinking water, solar lamps, sanitary enough for 10,000 people.

The British Government has announced it would provide aid worth Rp60 billion for Central Sulawesi.
