Nauru Island

NPR's Robert Siegel talks about the tiny Pacific island, Nauru, that has had its phone communication cut for more than three weeks. Nauru has asked for help from Australia and New Zealand, and a technician is reportedly on the way. The island is about halfway between Australia and Hawaii, it's eight square miles and has about 12,000 residents.
