Asian death toll could hit 100k

by on December 29th, 2004

“I would not be at all surprised that we will be on 100,000 (deaths) when we know what has happened on the Andaman and Nicobar islands,” Peter Rees of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said.

The federation currently puts the death toll at 77,828.

The United Nations mobilized what it called the biggest relief operation in its history to cope with the disaster.
