    Sea surges kill thousands in Asia

    A wall of water several metres high wrought havoc in Thailand
    More than 10,000 people have been killed across southern Asia in massive sea surges triggered by the strongest earthquake in the world for 40 years.
    The 8.9 magnitude quake struck under the sea near Aceh in north Indonesia, generating a wall of water that sped across thousands of kilometres of sea.

    More than 4,100 died in Indonesia, 3,500 in Sri Lanka and 2,000 in India.

    Casualty figures are rising over a wide area, including resorts in Sri Lanka and Thailand packed with holidaymakers.

    Well as you may well know now, the count has gone up past 14000, its horrific, seeing the images on TV at a time when we're all meant to be in peace and harmony and relaxingly bringing in the new year makes me feel so horribley sad for them all...
