Survivors, Relatives Mark Tsunami Anniversary


An estimated 230,000 people were killed or disappeared when huge waves slammed into 12 countries around the Indian Ocean on December 26th, 2004. The tsunami was caused by a magnitude nine-point-zero earthquake under the ocean floor off Indonesia's Sumatra island.

Residents of Aceh province, in northern Sumatra, gathered in mosques today to remember the 167-thousand Acehnese who died as the tsunami swept entire villages out to sea.

On Indonesia's Bali island, authorities held a tsunami drill to test a new alert system and raise public awareness.

Sri Lanka marked the anniversary with Buddhist prayers for its 35,000 dead, and by erecting the first of 100 coastal warning towers.

Multi-faith ceremonies were held in India, which lost 18 thousand people to the tsunami, and in Thailand, where 8,200 people died, about half of them foreign tourists.
