Reportage: Tsunami in Sri Lanka: Tsunami

A fisherman on the sea at dawn. The tsunami on 26 December 2004 destroyed the homes, boats, nets and livelihoods of the country's fishermen. Those who have managed to salvage their boats and have taken once again to the seas have a hard time selling their catch. Since seeing large numbers of bodies floating in the ocean, people have stopped buying fish and prices have plummeted.Dodanduwa, Sri Lanka.Photo © J.B. Russell
