Special services were held in churches and mosques throughout the land as Australia observes a national day of mourning for victims of the Asian Tsunami (At least 17 Australians are known to have died and others still missing). Flags flew at half mast and people were asked to observe a minute’s silence as a mark of respect. The Prime Minister John Howard marked the day by attending a service at St Andrews Anglican Cathedral in Sydney.
