Black July commemorated in Paris

French Tamils marked the 35th anniversary of the Black July pogroms, with a commemoration service in Paris this week.

Dozens of people gathered in the French capital city where a candle was lit in remembrance of those killed.

Over 3000 Tamils were massacred in the pogrom, whilst thousands more were effectively deported by the state to the North-East.
