Medical staff rush to treat to ethnic minority Tamil child at hospital in Vavuniya

Medical staff rush to treat to an ethnic minority Tamil child, who was injured by heavy combat between Tamil tigers and government military in Tamil rebel territory, at a hospital in Vavuniya, about 260 kilometres (160 miles) north of Colombo January 22, 2009. Nearly 100 civilians have been killed in artillery exchanges between Sri Lanka’s military and Tamil Tigers since the weekend, a top government official working in the area controlled by the rebels said on Thursday.
