Unprecedented security forces parade in Jaffna on Sri Lanka's Independence Day

Sri Lanka's security forces held an unprecedented parade in Jaffna, on the country's 69th Independence Day. 

Sri Lanka's military is thought to have committed mass atrocities on a large scale and maintains a heavy presence in the Tamil-dominated North-East of the island. Impunity prevails 8 years after the end of the armed conflict and suspected war criminals remain amongst the forces in the Tamil region.
