SUVA, Fiji Islands (September 11, 1998 - PACNEWS/Amy)---Supplying emergency water to drought-affected areas in Fiji's Yasawa Islands has been delayed again because government boats are not available.

Western Division engineer Temo Veitokiyaki said his department is unable to transport an emergency water supply to the western island group without the government boats.

They are not immediately available, he said, because of technical problems or other priority assignments.
