Casualties of Sri Lanka’s conflict
“”” The recent surge in fighting in Sri Lanka’s civil war is taking a heavy toll on the country’s civilian population. The Red Cross says more than two hundred people were killed and three hundred wounded in the first two months of this year alone, many of them children. Bomb attacks have become more frequent since the collapse of a ceasefire in January between the government and Tamil Tiger rebels. One of the worst was a bus bomb which claimed 22 lives. “””
