Radio Netherlands – Sri Lanka blocks UN humanitarian assistance

Sri Lanka is refusing to admit a UN humanitarian mission to its north-eastern combat zone, according to UN envoy John Holmes. Mr Holmes is attempting to provide assistance to the tens of thousands of civilians trapped in the relatively small area. He is also working to achieve a ceasefire, as is the European Union, but as yet to no avail.
