Boxing day tsunami in photos: Remembering the wave of destruction – The Indian Express

  • In this December 30, 2004 file photo, Hassan Fayez, center, speaks with one of his two surviving relatives, in what used to be his home as he holds a family album after losing 35 family members including his wife who was to deliver their first born son but died during the tsunami which hit the coastal town of Hambantota in southern Sri Lanka. Some 230,000 people were killed in the Indian Ocean tsunami set off by a magnitude 9.1 earthquake on Dec. 26, 2004. A dozen countries were hit, from Indonesia to India to Africa’s west coast. Scores of Associated Press journalists covered the disaster, and as the 10th anniversary approached, the AP asked some of them to describe the images that have stuck with them the most.
