Sentinelese survive the tsunami

I had to smile when I saw this:

New Delhi, Jan. 4. (PTI): In the first contact between the administration and the endangered Sentelese aborigines in Sentenel Island in Anndaman and Nicobar, the tribals greeted the Coastguard helicopters by firing arrows at them.

The Telegraph of Kolkata carries a similar story. It seems that the aboriginal tribes of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands have survived.
