ABC World Today : Sri Lanka labels murder video a fake
ELEANOR HALL: Images captured on a mobile phone are putting on pressure on the Sri Lankan Government to investigate allegations that uniformed soldiers shot unarmed men in cold blood.

The footage was allegedly taken in January during the conflict with the Tamil Tigers. It shows a soldier shooting a man in the head and eight other bodies lying on the ground nearby.

But the video has not been authenticated and the Sri Lankan Government is dismissing it as a hoax.
