Decapitated palm trees on a beach on Aceh's western coast, which bore the full brunt of the tsunami which struck South Asia on 26/12/2004.
An underwater earthquake measuring 9 on the Richter scale triggered a series of tidal waves which caused devastation when they struck dry land. 12 countries were affected by the tsunami, with a combined death toll of over 280,000. Aceh, the closest landfall to the epicentre of the quake, suffered the greatest loss of life.
