The Chinese Navy provided supplies and medical workers on Wednesday for relief efforts in Sri Lanka's flood-hit regions as the death toll in the country's worst monsoon disaster since 2003 climbed to 203.

Sixteen medical personnel aboard the People's Liberation Army Navy vessels Changchun, Jingzhou and Chaohu arrived at the port in Colombo to assist with the ongoing relief operations, the Defense Ministry said.

The Navy provided 1 metric ton of rice, 1 ton of flour, 10 inflatable rubber boats, 300 boxes of bottled water, instant noodles as well as various medical equipment and supplies, the ministry said. All the supplies were from the three ships, which were conducting goodwill visits around the world.
