Banda Aceh: Emotional reunion 10 years after tsunami

The Indian Ocean tsunami that struck on Boxing Day 2004 not only claimed hundreds of thousands of lives, but also left communities in countries such as Indonesia completely devastated.

The BBC's Andrew Harding travelled to Banda Aceh in the aftermath of the disaster, where he met an 11-year-old girl who had lost her parents and her home.

Ten years later he returned and found a young woman who had rebuilt her life, but still bore the scars of her ordeal.
