Sri Lanka Subject of Channel 4 Documentary

An international inquiry into war crimes by Sri Lankan government soldiers and the opposition LTTE (Tamil Tigers) was refused. Channel 4 (United Kingdom) has been collecting evidence from individuals who filmed terrible actions perpetrated by both sides.

The film has been viewed by many members of governments, including the United States.

Channel 4 has also made the film available free online but may not be able to do so after this month. Like many news programs today, it contains disturbing images and ought to be viewed with that in mind. See the film about Sri Lanka's Killing Fields here.
