A team of rescue workers of Russia's Emergencies Ministry, who helped the population of the earthquake-hit Indonesian island of Nias, are coming back to Moscow. "The group consisting of 48 rescuers and physicians spent 12 days on the island providing assistance to the population. As agreed with the local authorities, it completed its work and late on Thursday night and Friday morning is to arrive in Moscow," RIA Novosti was told at the Emergencies Ministry's press-service. The service recalled that the Russian specialists were among the first to land on the island of Nias, which was most hit by an earthquake on March 28. According to the ministry, throughout their entire period of stay on the island Russian search groups investigated more than 40 demolished buildings. On April 3, under rubble on the island, rescuers uncovered a live man, who was a local resident. Besides, an Emergencies Ministry mobile hospital carried out more than 30 surgical operations. Russian doctors rendered medical aid to 750 victims, including 333 children, saving the lives of many. On March 28 in the Indian Ocean an earthquake of 8.5 magnitude took place off the north-western coast of Sumatra between the islands of Simelue, Nias and Tuangku. The quake killed more than 400 people
