Hunting the Tigers

“For truth be told, we both know who will be behind my death, but dare not call his name.Not just my life,but your too depends on it.” Lasantha Wickramatunga

This week Amos Roberts reports from Sri Lanka, where the feared Tamil Tigers are surrounded in small pocket of the country and the government is moving in for the kill.

The 25 year old war against the Tigers has seen thousands killed and now an estimated 150,000 civilians are trapped in the middle of this brutal conflict.

As Roberts reports, no independent journalists are allowed near the war zone and those who dare criticise the government or the military are either detained or murdered by shadowy forces.
