Sri Lanka deploys troops for flood relief operations

Thousands of Sri Lankan troops have launched a massive operation to rescue nearly a million people affected by floods in the central, north and eastern provinces.

It is the biggest troops operation since the defeat of Tamil Tiger rebels one-and-a-half years ago. Read more at CNN.
