Mannar mass grave open to journalists, court says

A court-imposed ban on journalists entering a mass grave site in Mannar has been lifted after journalists challenged the injunction last week.

Lawyer P. Deniswaran said that the judge accepted that the court order had contained errors and confirmed that journalists could visit the site to collect news without being disturbed.

Registered journalists could obtain permission from the police officer on duty at the mass grave excavation site, the judge said.
