Sri Lanka Presses Assault as Civilians Flee Fighting
[ New York Times ]
The United States accused Sri Lanka on Wednesday of causing “untold suffering” among civilians in its push to win a 25-year-old conflict with Tamil separatists. People continued to pour out of the war zone, and the government announced the surrender of two prominent rebels.“I think that the Sri Lankan government knows that the entire world is very disappointed that in its efforts to end what it sees as 25 years of conflict, it is causing such untold suffering,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday.
