Tamils in France held a memorial event to mark the 16th anniversary of the Muttur massacre, where 17 aid workers from the French NGO, Action la Contre Faim (ACF), were summarily executed by the Sri Lankan security forces.
Flowers were laid in remembrance of the slain aid workers who were murdered at their compound where they provided humanitarian assistance to the survivors of the catastrophic tsunami in 2004.
Sri Lankan security forces had deliberately targeted the aid workers although they were unarmed and were wearing ACF t-shirts at the time of the killing, clearly identifiying that they were humanitarian workers.
The event was organised by France's Tamil Coordinating Committee and the Association Franco Tamoul De Clichy.
