Czech Republic observes day of mourning for tsunami victims

The Czech Republic joined other European countries on Wednesday in a day of mourning for the victims of the tsunami disaster in South Asia. Flags flew at half mast, sirens sounded across the country at noon and Czechs held a three-minute silence to pay respect to the 150,000 dead.

The number of Czechs still unaccounted for has dropped to 16, but there are fears that seven of them have died. Officially only one Czech victim has been confirmed.
