Maaveerar Naal marked at Jaffna Uni

Students at the University of Jaffna marked Maaveerar Naal (Tamil national remembrance day) on November 27, following on from the remembrance event which took place two days earlier. 

As many joined their families to attend large-scale events taking place at formerly destroyed LTTE thuyilum illams (LTTE resting homes), some students at the University of Jaffna lit lamps and lay flowers by the monument commemorating those 'who had sacrified their lives for freedom'. The monument was initially erected in November 2006, however was vandalised by Sri Lankan security forces.
