August 14 is the fifth anniversary of the massacre of fifty three school girls by Sri Lankan Air Force jets which bombed an orphanage in Vanni. Three staff were also killed.

Four SLAF jets dropped sixteen bombs in repeated passes over the children’s home run by the charity Sencholai.

The children's home had been designated a humanitarian zone and its GPS coordinates had been passed to the Sri Lankan military via the UN children’s agency, UNICEF, and the International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC).
