Sri Lanka steps up monsoon relief as toll hits 122Sri Lanka stepped up its military-led relief operations Saturday as nearly half a million people were displaced after a monsoon deluge killed at least 122 people and threatened more flooding. Rainfall on Friday triggered the worst flooding and landslides in 14 years in the southern and western parts of the island and although the rain eased on Saturday, low-lying areas remained under water, the authorities said. The official Disaster Management Centre (DMC) said a total of 122 people were confirmed dead while 97 remained missing.
