Medicine shortages prompt demonstration

[TamilNet, Saturday, 01 July 2000, 21:02 GMT]
Hundreds of people staged a demonstration in front of the office of Medicine Sans Frontiers (MSF) at Puddukudiyiruppu in the Mullaithivu District in the north-east of the island demanding that the aid agency should take immediate steps to get down enough drugs to save the lives of patients.

Demonstrators requested the MSF personnel stationed there to ensure adequate supply of medicines and drugs to hospitals in the LTTE-controlled Vanni region.

Many patients in the region will succumb to their illness, if prompt action is not taken, the demonstrators told the MSF staff.
