SHARE Caption only: Planes, tourists grounded after attack

Burned remains of three SriLankan Airbus planes lie on tarmac at airport near Colombo, Sri Lanka, Thursday two days after a Tamil rebel attack left 20 dead. Flights at the nation's only international airport picked up on Thursday, but schedules were still sketchy. SriLankan Airlines, which had half its fleet knocked out in the attack, plans to set up hubs in Singapore and Dubai. Thousands of tourists have been stranded since Tuesday's attack.
