A Vengeful Government in Sri Lanka
The beautiful, green island nation has now earned a place among other countries which carried out mass slaughter of a section of their population to achieve political and/or military objective.
- The last hospital inside the so-called no-fire zone in north-eastern Sri Lanka was shelled today for the second day in a row, killing at least 50 civilians, a government health official said.
- The shelling came the day after 49 people were killed when a shell struck the admissions ward of the same hospital, where casualties of the country's brutal civil war are being treated.
And the world remains a bystander.
