One in five Swedes who survived the South-East Asia Tsunami almost five years ago still feel adversely affected psychologically and suffer from various anxiety disorders.

Research by Uppsala University presented on Wednesday shows that of the 6,500 Swedes who survived the Tsunami on Boxing day 2004, a fifth of them still feel badly affected from the experience, suffering from sleeplessness, nightmares and anxiety.

However, Per Olof Michel, who led the research, told Swedish Radio's Ekot that only four percent of those affected have sought pyschological help.
