Lessons from the tsunami

Al Jazeera revisits two of the areas worst-hit by the 2004 tsunami disaster.

    In this special report from two of the worst-hit areas - Sri Lanka and the Indonesian province of Aceh - Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports on some of the lessons learned in the wake of the disaster.
