If you think the current bloodbath in Sri Lanka is bad, it could get worse.
A lot worse.
Blaming both the LTTE and the Sri Lankan government for the bloodbath, Amnesty International has warned that the bad situation could get worse after the conclusion of the May 13 elections in India (the neighboring south Indian state of Tamil Nadu goes to the polls on Wednesday in the final round of India’s Parliamentary elections).
Here’s what Amnesty International’s Asia-Pacific director Sam Zarifi had to say:
There are real fears that the “bloodbath” will turn into a flood of misery after 13 May. The Security Council must act on its responsibility to protect the civilians in Sri Lanka before hundreds more are killed and wounded by the two sides or succumb to malnutrition and disease.
Prabhakaran – Blood Thirsty
One of the main reasons the end-game in the Sri Lankan Army’s war against the LTTE terrorists is being prolonged is because the brutal LTTE terrorist leader Prabhakaran is using the 50,000 Tamils caught in the war zone as a human shield and refuses to let them flee to safe zones.
Independent media reports have confirmed that the LTTE is firing on the Tamils desperate enough to attempt to flee the war zone.
