Massacre escapees at Vavuniyaa hospital under strict surveillance

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 January 2009, 04:18 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) opened fire and massacred 7 civilians, including two children of a group of refugees who ended in the hands of the SLA in Murasumoaddai village in Ki'linochchi district on January 10, three days before the mass exodus of civilians towards Puthukkudiyiruppu. On the same day, the SLA blamed the Tigers for the killing of the 7 civilians. However, civilians who have been isolated into various detention camps run by the military, have revealed that the SLA soldiers had opened fire on them.

The wounded victims who were being treated at Vavuniyaa hospital have been harassed by the SLA and were brought under strict police surveillance as investigative reporters attempted to approach the eye-witnesses.

Nobody was allowed to visit the wounded civilians at the hospital and two detention camps, at Nelukku'lam and at Manik Farm, which are strictly guarded by the Sri Lankan armed forces. No one of the civilians have been allowed to go out, reports say. No outsiders are allowed even to visit them to talk.
