TNA condemns Mu'rika'ndi killings

[TamilNet, Friday, 23 May 2008, 18:27 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (The Illankai Tamil Arasu Kadchi) in a press release issued Friday condemned the killing of civilians in Mu'rika'ndi claymeor attack, and urged the International community "to take necessary measures to insist the Sri Lankan Government to stop its terrorist attack on Tamil civilians," and to restore the normalcy by withdrawing the security forces from the NorthEast.

Full text of press release follows:

The Deep Penetrating Unit of Sri Lankan Government attacked a vehicle by claymore in which several civilians were traveling on Akkarayan Murikandy road on 23.05.2008 at 2.00 pm. In that attack, 16 innocent civilians were killed on the spot and another 4 civilians were seriously injured. The injured persons were rushed to the Ki'linochchi hospital. The killed includes 4 males, 6 females and 6 children and out of the females 5 were mothers.

We vehemently condemn the cowardly and brutal attack of the Sri Lankan Government on civilians. Government has again clearly proved that it never gives up its anti democratic violence against Tamils, though it has lost its membership of Human Rights Council of the United Nations yesterday.

The Government is trying its best to evacuate the people living in the areas governed by LTTE threatening by military offensives, reckless air and claymore attacks and shelling. The Sri Lankan Government is purposely doing it in order to invade the Tamils Homeland by evacuating them from LTTE controlled areas.

We urge the International community to take necessary measures to insist the Sri Lankan Government to stop its terrorist attack on Tamil civilians and restore the normalcy through withdrawal of the forces from our homeland.
