I had to read the headline twice to make sure I wasn't misunderstanding
it. The death toll from the tsunami has now exceeded 226,000. Dear
The big jump in the numbers came because nations have begun listing as
"dead" many victims who had previously been classified as missing.
Even so, there are still thousands of people listed among the missing.
So the casualty count, unfortunately, is likely to continue to rise.
We may never know the full scope of this tragedy, particularly in the
hardest-hit regions where whole villages were washed away. Lord have
mercy on all their souls. And on the people left behind.
