PHUKET: -- Memorial services were held in Phuket and elsewhere along the Andaman coast this morning (Dec 26) to remember the thousands of lives lost to the Asian Tsunami 12 years ago.


In Phuket, Acting Thalang District Chief Wikom Jakthi this morning led proceedings at the Tsunami Memorial Wall near Mai Khao Beach.


After Buddhist, Muslim and Christian prayers for those lost to the waves that devastated Phuket, Mr Wikom led the small crowd in hanging wreaths along the Wall of Remembrance.


In Phang Nga, north of Phuket, services were held near Khao Lak at the Tor 813 patrol boat memorial, where the waves dumped the boat nearly one kilometre inland.


Khao Lak and Baan Bang Nieow suffered heavily in the tsunami, with many of the victims being Scandinavians on holiday over the Christmas period.
