In Sri Lanka, a National Day of Mourning

In Sri Lanka, the death toll from the tsunami is now above 28,000. In the village of Ahangama, volunteers delivered blankets and bags of rice to survivors. The government declares a national day of mourning, but many people didn't need an official declaration. NPR's Jason Beaubien reports.
