Tsunami victims remembered in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 27 December 2009, 02:26 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Jaffna transported nearly a thousand people in vehicles to Thaazhaiyadi in Jaffna Saturday where a memorial event was held for the victims killed by tsunami tidal wave five years ago, sources in Jaffna said. Tsunami had claimed 956 lives in Uduththu'rai area, 76 in Ma'natkaadu and 16 in Maathakal in Jaffna district. Persons who participated in the event said that the tsunami memorial monument erected by Liberation Tigers and the graves of tsunami victims had been destructed by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) during the war.

Vanni IDPs held in Kodikaamam Raamaavil camp too were among the people taken by SLA to the event.

The people of areas from Naakarkoayil to Chu'ndikku'lam had been displaced during the war. It now looks barren without any human beings, the IDPs said.

Minister Douglas Devananda and the Commander of SLA 51st Division were present at the event.
