The third day of Tamil genocide remembrance week was marked in Jaffna today, at the site of a school that was bombed by the Sri Lankan air force in 1995.
Members of the Tamil National People's Front (TNPF) lit flames at the Nagarkovil school this morning, as part of commemorative events taking place this week.
The school, Nagarkovil Maha Vidyalayam, was bombed by the Sri Lankan air force on September 22 1995, while children were crammed in the playground for their lunch break. 40 were killed in the attack including 26 students.
The TNPF paid tribute to those killed in the bombing, as well as to those massacred in Mullivaikkal.
