The Sri Lankan government says an Amnesty International report on displaced people in the north of the island contains “outright falsehood”. It says Amnesty is trying to show the government in an unfavourable light. Amnesty’s report urged the government and Tamil Tiger rebels to let international observers monitor the plight of the displaced. It had other criticisms of both sides in the fighting. Amnesty told the BBC that it stands by its report.
