About 40,000 people are reported dead around southern Asia and as far away as Somalia on Africa's eastern coast, most killed by massive tidal waves that smashed coastlines after a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off Indonesia's coast on Sunday, followed by aftershocks in the region.

Death tolls by country:

Sri Lanka: 18,706

India: 4,371
Thailand: 1,516
Malaysia: 65
Myanmar: 90

Not much that can be said really, except best wishes to everybody and sympathies to all the millions affected across a huge chunk of the globe. Very sad.
