Tearful prayers on Day 150 of Mullaitivu mothers of the disappeared protest

Mothers of the disappeared protesting in Mullaitivu marked 150 days since they began their campaign on Friday.

The 150th day was marked with prayers at the historic Vattrapaalai Kannagi Amman Kovil in Mullaitivu.

The mothers say they will continue to protest until they receive answers about the whereabouts of their children, most of whom were surrendered at the end of the war.

The Mullaitivu protest is one of many across the Tamil homeland in which families of the disappeared have been protesting, including in Kilinochchi, Trincomalee and Vavuniya.

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
