Maaveerar Naal commemorated in Maavadi Thuyilum Illam, Batticaloa

Many united to pay tribute to the fallen LTTE cadres at the Mavadi Munmari Thuyilum Illam on Maaveerar Naal. See photographs from the event below.


Meanwhile, nearby Maaveeral Naal remembrance events were severely disrupted by Sri Lankan police officers, who stormed commemorations at the Tharavai Thuyilum Illam in Batticaloa and arrested at least four Tamils earlier today.

We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
