Fourteen Bangladeshi fishermen are returning home after a two-month ordeal that saw them given up for dead.

The trawlermen were shipwrecked in late November but were rescued after clinging to a barrel for a week.

But their ordeal was not over - they were taken to distant Sri Lanka, where no-one realised where they were from due to language difficulties.

Best news of the day. It, a long way from Cox,s bazaar to Sri Lanka. If they were americans they would have movie contracts coming home.
