Demonstrators complained that seven months have passed and the Sri Lanka Government has not decided on a permanent solution to this issue. More than 300 Muslim families are affected by the 200 buffer-zone declared by Colombo.

The picketing began around 8:00 a.m. in front of the DS office which was at standstill following the picketing.

108 Muslim persons died in Kattankudy and 93 persons are still enlisted as missing. Around 2500 houses were damaged by the tsunami in Kattankudy.
