German Tamils held a remembrance event for the approximately 70,000-140,000 Tamils killed during the Mullivaikkal massacres.
Protesters held up signs demanding an answer for the approximate 146, 679 Tamils who disappeared during the final stages of the war. Families across the Tamil homeland have taken to the streets since the end of the war requesting an account of where their loved ones are. Over a decade has passed and 69 mothers have died without finding a solution to their grievances.
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
