Search and rescue efforts for about 90 asylum seekers lost at sea are running into a second night, after a boat carrying more than 200 people capsized north-west of Christmas Island on Thursday afternoon. The first rescued asylum seekers arrived on Christmas Island earlier today, while naval and merchant vessels continue to scour the ocean for survivors. Three bodies have been recovered from the site of the disaster but authorities believe they still have time to find survivors. [ full story ]

One idiot in the earlier article about pre-historic human skelton found in SL even tried to get a political advantage. Seems he has done a forensic test and found that this 10,000 years old skelton is a tamil and killed by a sinhalees. That is what exactly he wrote here. Hope you have seen it.

Suneth, If you find the footprint of somebody you know who there is likelihood of murder kidnapping rape. But the reverse is not true. So dont blame the commentator rather advice your people to get away from this and lead a decent life. By the way what is the Per Capita Lie (PCL) of your motherland FSSL now. I heard that is is still on the increase.
