VATICAN CITY, DEC 26, 2004 (VIS) - After praying the Angelus, John Paul II made an appeal for aid to the populations of Southeast Asia, struck by tsunamis early this morning.

  "The Christmas holiday has been saddened by the news that comes from Southeast Asia about the powerful tsunamis which struck Indonesia, with consequences in other countries, including Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia and the Maldives."

  "Let us pray for the victims of this tremendous tragedy.  We assure those who are suffering of our solidarity, and we hope that the international community acts to bring relief to the stricken populations," concluded the Pope.
