Crossing the Line in Sri Lanka

August 14, 2007

"For the past year, Action Against Hunger has been pressing for a full investigation into the murder of its staff. They were found in their own compound wearing T-shirts that identified them as humanitarian workers. They were lying face-down and it appears that they had been deliberately executed.

...It is difficult to think of anywhere else in the world that such a scandal would have raised so little outcry. Sri Lanka's brutal civil war has rumbled on for almost a quarter of a century attracting little attention from the outside world. But there are some red lines of inhumanity that governments should be told they cannot cross."
