Sri Lankan army to rebuild temples in Nepal

Sri Lanka’s military will be deployed to Nepal to rebuild temples destroyed in the devastating earthquake, which hit the country in the Himalayas earlier this year.

The government allocated RS345m to the Ministry of Buddhasasana for the rebuilding of the Buddhist temple in Swayambhunath and the Rato Machindranath Hindu temple in Lalitpur.

Cabinet ministers approved the plans earlier today.

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
