[TamilNet, Thursday, 29 January 2009, 11:53 GMT]
“Sri Lanka government’s attacks on the innocent Tamils in Vanni continue to kill hundreds while injuring many more according to the reports of ICRC, the only International humanitarian agency allowed to be present in Vanni,” said the report issued by Commission for Justice and Peace of the Catholic Diocese of Jaffna (CJPCD) Thursday, the second day of the protest fast against the killing of Tamils in the Vanni observed in Jaffna, sources in Jaffna said.

Hundreds of persons including the Bishop of Jaffna, priests, nuns, members of religious and social organizations, NGO representatives and the Chief Priest of Nalloor, Srilasiri Somachariya Suvamikal participated in the continuing protest fast calling the attention of the International Community and World Humanitarian Organizations, to the human disaster unfolding in Vanni.

More than 300 were killed and more than 1400 were injured on Tuesday, 46 were killed and 76 were injured on Wednesday according to ICRC, the report said.

“The few makeshift medical centres in Vanni lack medicine and staff to treat the injured in Vanni while the volunteers trying to help the victims themselves have been injured.

Nearly 250,000 internally displaced people crowded into a shrinking area are unable to seek safer places due to the continuing artillery fire on them.

Time is running out and firm decisions have to be made now,” the GJPCD Thursday report said.

“The silence of the International Community and World Humanitarian Organizations continue to grieve us and we appeal them to urgently act to stop the war waged by Sri Lanka government on the Tamils Vanni,” the report further said.
