Queen to attend tsunami memorial
The Queen will attend a memorial service in memory of the victims of the tsunami later this year, Tony Blair has said. Fifty-one Britons have been confirmed dead after the Boxing Day disaster, he told the House of Commons. Details of the memorial service would be confirmed soon, after consultation with the families of victims. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: "This has been a significant tragedy, with great loss of life, and it is important that the Queen, as Head of State, is there to express the nation's sympathy with the bereaved families."
