Vanni Situation (Tamil 'safe zone')

11-05-2009 14:45

Repeated call to save the innocent civilians life in the Vanni area failed and more than Two thousand five hundren were killed from Saturday ( 9-05-2009) till Monday morning 11-05-2009). Only a limited number of bodies were brought to the make shift hospital and all other bodies were scatted on ground and buried in the bunkers.

Many civilians were killed while they were in bunkers, and could not find them. Innocent civilians were killed thousands and thousands, but we are only counting the number of death bodies and injured people and unable to stop these killings.

Still the people inside amounts to more than 150,000 moving again within the Govt. announced safety areas. But the civilians were killed in the safety areas. They do not have any passage to come out of the war area, they only get rice kanchy for a day. During the heavy fighting and shelling they do not even have this rice kanchy. The hardship and suffering of these people cannot be expressed in words.
