Jaffna Uni students defy threats to mark May 18

Students at the University of Jaffna alongside staff defied threats from the Sri Lankan army and police to commemorate May 18 at the Mullivaikkal monument in the campus.

The university was shut indefinitely from last week, but students resolved to hold a memorial regardless.

The campus has experienced a high security presence since the Easter Sunday bombings, with two students and a canteen owner arrested during a military search earlier this month.
