Bishop’s Sri Lanka plea: CEN 9.05.08 p 5. September 9, 2008

Fighting between government troops and Tamil separatists have left the people of Northern Sri Lanka “caught in the cross-fire” of a “never ending war,” the Bishop of Colombo said in a statement released last week.

The Rt Rev Duleep de Chickera urged the government and the forces of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) — the Tamil Tigers, to allow religious leaders to broker a peace agreement, as state diplomatic efforts have so far failed to end the fighting that has left over 65,000 dead since 1983.
