Tamil newspapers commemorate Maaveerar Naal amidst military crackdown

Several Tamil newspapers marked Maaveerar Naal on their front pages today, despite the Sri Lankan military blocking commemoration events.

The commemoration by the Tamil media houses comes as Sri Lankan courts barred Maaveerar Naal events and the Sri Lankan military ramped up its presence in the Tamil homeland, blocking access to LTTE cemeteries.

See a selection of newspapers and their front pages below.

We need your support

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
