Resettling civilians locate mass graves in Mullaiththeevu

[TamilNet, Saturday, 06 August 2011, 16:18 GMT]
Uprooted civilians of Vanni, who are recently allowed to resettle in some areas of Puthukkudiyiruppu (PTK) division of Mullaiththeevu district, have come across hundreds of skeletons of slain civilians in the 2009 war of Tamil genocide. The residents of Kaiveali village of PTK, while putting up temporary huts in their lands and paving way for lanes along the borders of the allowed resettlement area, have come across human graves and skeletons this week, sources in Mullaiththeevu told TamilNet.

Except inside the lands used by the SLA, skeletons are spotted all throughout the lands where resettlement is yet to be allowed.

Resettling villagers said hundreds of human skeletons could still be spotted from a distance.

Although the Sri Lankan military has claimed to have cleared Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) in the areas where civilians have been allowed to resettle, the resettling villagers have found several mines in their lands.
