Sri Lankan navy assaults Tamil farmers in Jaffna

Sri Lankan sailors assaulted at least two Tamil farmers in Vadamarachchi East this week, in yet another attack on Tamil civilians.

The farmers were returning from work, when they were stopped by the sailors and attacked with metal wires at approximately 7.30pm.

A military enforced curfew started just 30 minutes later.

The attack is the latest in a series of ramped up Sri Lankan state violence against Tamil civilians in the North-East.
