The salt water invasion of the Carterets Islands in Papua New Guinea, has forced another seven families to leave the islands to settle on the mainland of Bougainville.

They are being resettled in land gifted by the Catholic Church near the town of Tinputz where another five Carterets families have settled since 20-09.

Ursula Rakova, the director of the NGO Tulele Peisa which is overseeing the relocation is telling Brian Abbott the Carterets islands will be uninhabitable within about 30 years.
