Tsunami's political impact

Sri Lanka and Indonesia choose different paths after 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

    The two countries worst hit by the most devastating disaster in modern history have followed very different political paths.

    Indonesia chose a peace deal to end a 30-year old conflict in Aceh, while Sri Lanka opted to step up its military campaign against the Tamil Tiger separatists.

    As Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen finds, the decisions had a crucial impact on the recovery and healing process for those caught up in the tsunami.
