A Buddhist monk looks on at a wave-shaped tsunami monument for the victims of the 2004 tsunami in Ban Nam Khem, a southern fishing village destroyed by the wave December 26, 2014. Survivors of Asia's 2004 tsunami and relatives of its 226,000 victims gather along shorelines of the Indian Ocean on Friday for prayers and memorial services to mark the 10th anniversary of a disaster that still leaves an indelible mark on the region. In Thailand, where 5,395 people were killed, among them about 2,000 foreign tourists, commemoration ceremonies will be held in Ban Nam Khem.
