SLAF bombers attack Christian orphanage for girls
[TamilNet, Friday, 26 December 2008, 13:31 GMT]
Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers targetted 'Karuna Nilayam', a Christian center and center for orphaned and disabled girls located close to the A9 highway in Ki'linochchi town, at 4:30 p.m. on Christmas day, sources in Ki'linochchi said. The resident girls have been relocated to a different building and no one was injured in the attack, the adminstrators said.
The area was designated as a 'safety zone,' and administrators said they are confounded on why their institution became a target for the SLA.
Karuna Nilayam is managed by the Jaffna Catholic diocese.
