A boy hangs strips of white polythene near a mass grave for victims, who died when their train was swept from its tracks by the 2004 tsunami, during a memorial in Peraliya

A boy hangs strips of white polythene, the colour being a symbolism for death in Buddhism, near a mass grave for victims, who died when their train was swept from its tracks by the 2004 tsunami, during a memorial in Peraliya, about 90 km (56 miles) south of Colombo December 26, 2013. Hundreds of memorial events were held across Asia in memory of the towering waves that crashed ashore with little warning on December 26, 2004, killing around 230,000 people in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and nine other countries. More than half the victims were Indonesians; with Sri Lanka and India next worst hit. REUTERS/Dinuka Liyanawatte (SRI LANKA - Tags: ANNIVERSARY DISASTER SOCIETY)
