UN team visit final war site

A team from the office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights visited some of the areas where the final war took place between the army and the LTTE.

The UN delegation, in Sri Lanka following the adoption of a resolution at the Human Rights Council in March, had also met several officials in Mullaitivu.

Reports from the north said that the UN team had visited Mullivaikal and Anandapuram, two areas where some of the most bitter fighting took place.

In Kilinochchi, the UN team had met government officials and discussed the resettlement process and other related issues.
