Sri Lanka says EU diplomats may visit war-torn north
Sri Lanka said on Wednesday it would open up its war-torn north to international scrutiny, days after the UN said it suspected war crimes were being committed in the fight against Tamil rebels. A foreign ministry official said talks were under way to give a European Union fact-finding mission access to the area, which has been almost totally off-limits to diplomats, aid workers and journalists. “We are in the process of finalising the dates and the agenda,” Sri Lanka’s Foreign Secretary Palitha Kohona told AFP.
