Rescue workers gather and identify the corpses of people killed in the tsunami which struck South Asia on 26/12/2004.
An underwater earthquake measuring 9 on the Richter scale triggered a series of tidal waves which caused devastation when they struck dry land. 12 countries were affected by the tsunami, with a combined death toll of over 150,000. In Thailand many of the victims were Western tourists. © Fredrik Naumann
