Malaysia - A large number of people are converging in Kelantan, bringing welcome aid to the flood victims. There's another large number that is coming in - but they are not welcome.
These "disaster tourists" are adding to the woes of the people by coming in large groups and clogging up areas with their vehicles.
They are also getting in the way of services and volunteers who are trying desperately to reach the victims.
Those distributing aid to the flood victims here say their jobs have been hampered by these "sightseers". "They choke up roads with their cars," they said.
A military officer, who only wanted to be known as Yan, said the roads in Manek Urai here were congested with casual visitors when priority should be given to vehicles bringing in aid.
"To bring 20 to 30 cars for a visit to the area only worsens the situation," he said.
"The roads are already congested with victims' cars as most are covered in mud and debris. These tourists shouldn't be driving into the rural areas nor be there at all," the officer said.
The bad traffic flow left volunteer doctor Beh Xi Chin and his team stuck on a bridge for almost three hours
