Floods force fish off S Lanka menu

Outbreak of disease following floods has severely depleted fish stocks in island-nation.


    Sri Lanka's worst floods in half a century could cost an estimated $600m.

    More than 130,000 people are still living in temporary shelters and vast swathes of land have been destroyed.

    And a disease caused by floods has also severely depleted fish stocks.
