‘Crisis unfolding’ in Sri Lanka
[ BBC ]
A major humanitarian crisis is unfolding in northern Sri Lanka, with a quarter of a million people trapped by fighting, the Red Cross says.

It called on both sides to allow immediate and free access to the combat zone for humanitarian workers. The military say they are involved in a final push against retreating rebels.
