NTF demontrators also urged Norway to stop providing any financial aid to Sri Lanka.

Tamils consider the Norwegian aid given to Sri Lanka is being used to kill their own people, the appeal said.

The copies of the appeal to the Foreign Minister were addressed to Mr. Eric Solheim, Norwegian Minister for International Development and Jonas Gahr StÝre, Minister of Foreign affairs.
