107 Tamils arrested in Colombo

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and Sri Lanka Police (SLP) were involved in house to house searches across Colombo on Sunday. 107 Tamils were said to have been detained during the search operation.

Meanwhile three journalists working for the ‘Thinakural’ Tamil daily were also arrested while returning home from work.

The possession of journalist’s identification card, national identification card could not prevent these journalists from being arrested. Even calls from Tamil MPs have been unable to free them.
