LONDON, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Britain on Monday pledged to add "further support" to the 32 million British pounds (42.2 million U.S. dollars) relief fund in the battle against the Hurricane Irma.
The British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told Radio 4 that only 4 million pounds remained out of the 32 million relief fund.
His message came as senior MPs and residents of the Caribbean islands criticized the British government's slow response.
Johnson announced on Sunday, fifty police officers would be dispatched to the Britain's overseas territories.
Some 500 British troops have been sent to Anguilla, Turks and Caicos, and British Virgin Islands, amid reports of looting in some areas.
