Twelve missing, eight feared dead in Indian Ocean disaster
Twelve Czechs remain unaccounted for in the wake of the Indian Ocean disaster, eight of the missing are feared dead. A man who has both Czech and Swiss citizenship is also missing, but is kept on the Swiss list since he lives and works in Switzerland. The Czech Republic has only one confirmed casualty so far - a 24 year old woman. Meanwhile, experts have been taking DNA samples from relatives of the eight Czechs believed to have died. The results have already been sent to Thailand and Sri Lanka in order to aid the identification process. The Czech Foreign Ministry has now openly acknowledged the possibility that the bodies of some Czech victims may already have been buried in mass graves.
