It’s the day of death in the Paradise isle on Monday with the body count of locals and foreigners rising as the seawaters subsided following tidal wave that has taken over 5,000 lives and displaced over a million people in Sri Lanka. “We estimate that 70 foreign tourists are dead from all parts of the island so far,” said the Director General of the Sri Lanka Tourist Board, S Kalaiselvam on Monday, the day after tidal waves slammed the tightly packed tourist beaches of Sri Lanka.

The total death count, according to the Prime Minister’s office, came to 5,000 by mid-Monday morning with signs of the news getting worse as the tide turned returning the ‘missing’ as the dead.
