    Tamil civilians slaughtered as army shells ‘no-fire zone’

    19 april 2009

    Pulmoddai is two and a half hours’ drive north of Trincomalee, a journey involving countless military checkpoints. Soldiers are everywhere, in bunkers or standing beneath trees watching the road. No one can move without permission from the Defence Ministry.

    However, reports continue to get through. Two regional health directors, defying government instructions, have described at length the extent of the unfolding humanitarian disaster.

    Gunalan, chairman of the local Sri Lankan Red Cross, said: “All these people are very badly traumatised. Some have lost all their loved ones and come here alone, one boy losing both legs. One girl came who had lost her husband and children and everybody.”

    The Health Ministry says both doctors will face disciplinary action. But Sathiyamorthy denied he was under pressure from the LTTE. “We are telling the truth. The government has strongly asked us not to tell the truth, but we must.”
