In Sri Lanka over a 100,000 civilians escaped the area where the Tamil Tigers (rebels) were boxed in. However, several times during the sort of cease fire the Tigers gabbed hostages who were also Tamils. Guns were held to the hostages heads and they were used for shields against the army of Sri Lanka. Finally, the army rescued the hostages. Stories were told of very young Tamel boys forced to fight with the rebels and of long periods of time with very little food.
This morning the army of Sri Lanka promised to stop using heavy artillery. Hurray for the U. N. and world pressure. NO MORE SHOCK AND AWE!
