Ethnic Tamils Still Facing Hardship in Sri Lanka

(RV - 30 July 2010) A dozen men armed with assault rifles and petrol bombs attacked the offices of a media company in Sri Lanka whose owners had supported the opposition in the last presidential election.
The men entered the premises of Voice of Asia Network in Colombo and assaulted a security guard before setting the buildings on fire with petrol bombs.

Meanwhile, ethnic Tamils in the country’s north continue to suffer harsh conditions even though the country’s 25 year-long civil war has ended in May of 2009.
