Tamil party says Sri Lankan war refugees remain homeless

Sri Lanka's main Tamil political party says 15 months after the end of civil war thousands of displaced men, women and children are still living in the open. The Tamil National Alliance says the government's promise to allow civilians to return to their homes has not been kept. The TNA says over 3 thousand families allowed out of the state-run camps are homeless because the military is either occupying their homes or not allowing them to return to their villages. Official figures show more than 300 thousand Tamil civilians were held in internment camps when fighting ended in May last year. They were granted freedom late last year after intense international pressure on Colombo.
