A relief coordination committee is to be established to provide an accurate overview of the emergency needs of cyclone victims in Myanmar ahead of the international donors meeting in Yangon on Sunday. The committee, named ''Coalition of Mercy,'' was initiated by ASEAN and is intended to instil a sense of confidence in donors as the organizers hope to get necessary assistance to the battered region. ASEAN Secretary-General Surin Pitsuwan said the committee would try to produce an accurate assessment of the relief situation in Myanmar and attempt to get the distribution of aid up to international standards.
