Unbelievable

The official death toll in the Indian Ocean tsunamis has reached 280,000.

Hundreds of bodies are still being pulled daily from the rubble in Indonesia, while many more lie unidentified in mass graves in Thailand as tsunami-hit countries struggle to even count their dead, let alone identify and bury them.

With 11 Indian Ocean countries suffering deaths and more than 50 other nations reporting citizens killed, the disaster a month ago touched an unprecedented number of communities.
Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand had the heaviest toll.

The overall number of presumed dead stands at more than 280,000, but nobody knows for certain how many perished in the giant waves that engulfed coastlines on December 26.

In Indonesia's worst-hit Aceh province more than 1,000 bodies a day are still being recovered.

Please give.
