His strong condemnation comes in the wake of LTTE shooting down 17 civilians and injuring 69 others when they were leaving the tiger bastion of Pudukudirippu Tuesday morning and Monday’s suicide bomb attack by a female black tiger which left 28 dead and 64 wounded.

Basil Rajapaksa, Senior Presidential Advisor and Parliamentarian said these attacks were carried out against the internally displace persons who have fled from areas of Mullathivu.

Basil Rajapaksa, the brother of Sri Lankan President, said under the advise and directions of Mahinda Rajapaksa Refugees welfare centers have been set up for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPS) during this critical time.
