Trapped Sri Lankans face starvation

At least 6500 Tamils have been killed in the last 3 months. The UN and the international community must ensure that supplies are swiftly sent to the area where an estimated 50,000 people remain. There has been an influx of over 100,000 people into IDP camps that need food urgently.

The LTTE (Tamil Tigers) are a resistance army that want the right to self-determination for the Tamils. The war on the Tigers, and the Tamil civilians has increased the popularity of the Sri Lankan government back by the majority Senhalese ethnic group.
