A book written by the LTTE political division's women's wing leader Thamilini is to be launched in Kilinochchi today, despite reported attempts to block the event by Sri Lankan police.
The book launch will be headed by poet Pon. Kanthan and is set to take place on Saturday at the Kilinochchi Co-operative College Hall. Two books are set to be released, an autobiography reportedly written by Thamilini prior to her death and an anthology of poems, both of which have been spearheaded by her husband.
Sri Lankan police had previously attempted to halt the event, stating that permission to release the book would only be granted if the photographs of Thamilini wearing her LTTE uniform and that of the Eelam Tamil flag were removed from the cover page.
