SLA blocks humanitarian supplies to Vanni

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 September 2008, 15:25 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Vavunkyaa turned away Wednesday fifteen lorries carrying humanitarian supplies to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Ki'linochchi district. Officials attached to the Ki'linochchi GA office said the sudden blocking by the SLA of the much needed medicine and essential supplies, which were already delayed for weeks, would affect thousands as many more civlians were being made IDPs in the district.

Many of the registered displaced civilians were yet to receive their rations for the past month.

On Tuesday, the SLA only allowed 9 of the vehicles with supplies to Mullaiththeevu district.
