Colombo builds up for imminent massacre

[TamilNet, Sunday, 03 May 2009, 13:41 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) during the weekend has reportedly been engaged in heavy deployment of its troops poised for a major onslaught, reports from Vanni said citing sources close to the LTTE on Sunday. All kinds of heavy weapons, including prohibited ones, are ready for deployment on the 'No Fire Zone', the sources said. Meanwhile, denying the use of heavy weapons Sri Lanka's president and Commander-in-Chief Mahinda Rajapaksa said Saturday that he can't help for the world not believing in him. On Saturday, several artillery shells fired by the SLA on the only remaining makeshift hospital in the 'safety zone' killed at least 64 patients and attendees including a volunteer doctor and wounded 87.

Reports quoting sources close to the LTTE in Vanni said that around 200 gas masks were transported by the SLA to Vadduvaakal evoking apprehension of extensive use of chemical weapons on civilians in the next round of carnage.

Journalistic circles have already collected eyewitness evidence for SLA using chemical weapons in a previous occasion against LTTE combatants.
