More information about the video content bellow: 1. Tonga became known in the West as the Friendly Islands because of the congenial reception accorded to Captain James Cook on his first visit in 1773. He arrived at the time of the ʻinasi festival, the yearly donation of the First Fruits to the Tuʻi Tonga (the islands' paramount chief) and so received an invitation to the festivities. According to the writer William Mariner, the chiefs wanted to kill Cook during the gathering but could not agree on a plan. 2. The primary island, Tongatapu, has a number of tricks up its sleeve, such as the spectacular blowholes along the south western coastline. You’ll find four miles of coast with countless blowholes that can spout water 30 meters high. Go ahead and take bus from Nukualofa towards the village of Houma (Half an hour) and make sure to be there at high tide for any truly spectacular view. 3. The current royal dynasty of Tonga was founded in 1831 by Taufa’ahau Tupou, who took the name George I. He consolidated the kingdom by conquest and in 1875 granted a constitution. Tonga became independent on June 4, 1970. The government is largely controlled by the king, his nominees, and a small group of hereditary nobles. 4. Not much is known before European contact because of the lack of a writing system, but oral history has survived and been recorded after the arrival of the Europeans. By the 12th century, Tongans and the Tongan paramount chief, the Tuʻi Tonga, had a reputation across the central Pacific—from Niue, Samoa, Rotuma, Wallis & Futuna, New Caledonia to Tikopia—leading some historians to speak of a Tuʻi Tonga Empire. 5. Despite being a small country, Tonga has its own army. Furthermore, it participated in WWI, as part of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force, and in WWII. In recent times, Tongan soldiers were sent to Afghanistan and Iraq and participated in several peace keeping missions. 6. Located in Oceania, Tonga is an archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean, directly south of Samoa and about two-thirds of the way from Hawaii to New Zealand. Its 169 islands, 36 of them inhabited cover an 800-kilometre-long north-south line. The largest island, Tongatapu, is where the capital city of Nukuʻalofa is located. 7. The Free Wesleyan Church is the largest Methodist denomination in Tonga, and also the state church. Everyday life is heavily influenced by Polynesian traditions and especially by the Christian faith; for example, all commerce and entertainment activities cease on Sunday, from the beginning of the day at midnight, to the end of the day at midnight. The constitution declares the Sabbath sacred forever.

Answer: "Oh this is so out of character, yeah very out of character I don't think anybody expected it to happen." 8. Australian evacuee leaving airport with her luggage 9. SOUNDBITE (English) Vox pop, Australian evacuee: "I think it got out of control, I'm sure that they (referring to the Tonga government) didn't intend for the damage to happen that did happen." 10. Australian evacuee leaving airport 11. Evacuated couple leaving airport STORYLINE The first evacuees from the riot torn South Pacific nation of Tonga touched down in Sydney on Monday after New Zealand and Australia sent in troops to restore law and order. Pro-democracy advocates in the near feudal kingdom said troops from Australia and New Zealand were helping to ensure airport security and restore the island nation's current political order. About 150 troops and police flew in late on Saturday to secure key infrastructure at the request of the Tongan government, two days after eight people died in a violent riot that saw 80 percent of the nation's commercial centre torched by mobs. Arriving at Sydney airport, one Canadian evacuee said she was relieved to leave Tonga and labelled it a "mess." "They have to rebuild, there is no electricity, there is no power. You could not go out really and travel around, you certainly couldn't go out into any of the tourist areas or do anything like that so we are just happy to be out," she added. Another evacuee said the rioting was very out of character for Tonga and no one could have expected the violence that occurred. The trigger for the violence that started last Wednesday was anger that parliament might finish its session for the year without settling plans to introduce reforms that would give democratically elected lawmakers a majority in parliament over royally appointed legislators. Finau Tutone, a pro-democracy leader in Tonga, told New Zealand media that the troops had been welcomed by the people who thought they would perpetuate the existing political system that caused the dissatisfaction. He said the Peoples' Committee for Democratic Reform had sent a petition to the King (Siaosi Tupou V) for the Tongan Prime Minister Fred Sevele and some other ministers to be dismissed because it would quell down the dissatisfaction of the people. However questions have been raised by pro-democracy leaders that Australia and New Zealand should have done more to assist political change earlier. New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark immediately rejected the claim the troops were helping prop up the current Tongan government. She said New Zealand was not taking sides in any internal dispute in Tonga and troops were there to restore law and order and that meant the island's international airport could reopen. Tonga is situated halfway between Australia and Tahiti, and has a population of about 108-thousand people.
