Massacre in the Sri Lanka ‘safe zone’
[ The Independent ]
Dozens of civilians in Sri Lanka are feared dead or wounded after a so-called “safe zone” set aside for refugees came under artillery fire. It is believed that 250,000 people have become caught up in the end-game of the island’s bitter civil war as the military continues to drive the Tamil Tigers into an ever-diminishing area of jungle following the capture of Mullaittivu, the rebels’ last major town, at the weekend. Humanitarian convoys, on which the civilians depend, have not been able to reach them for almost two weeks.
