The number of people believed dead or missing from Sunday's earthquake and tsunami in southern Asia is rising rapidly. Thailand has almost tripled the number of missing to some 4,100, while saying more than 1,600 are confirmed dead.

Relief aid is flowing into southern Asian countries devastated by Sunday's earthquake and tsunami. Governments worldwide have pledged ten of millions of dollars to help the victims of the disaster. But while supplies are being airlifted in, top health officials are warning that sanitation problems and disease could double the immediate death toll.

Indian authorities say rescue teams are headed out today to the last of the remote Andaman and Nicobar islands that have been cut off since Sunday's killer tsunami. Officials say they have been able to establish contact with survivors on most of the inhabited islands of the archipelago.
