Maaveerar Naal reignited in the Vanni with commemorations across Mullaitivu

Tamils across Mullaitivu, the most heavily militarised district in the homeland, gathered at various LTTE cemeteries to mark Maaveerar Naal.

This land had been marked for the construction of a new Thuyilum Illam by the LTTE during the de-facto state of Tamil Eelam.

A special service by the families of fallen Sea Tigers, the naval wing of the LTTE, was held on the Mullaitivu seafront.

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
