Two of Sri Lanka's Foulest War Crimes

If members of the UNHRC in Geneva haven't heard this one, they certainly should... this government was willing to wound, kidnap, rape and slaughter journalists.

(SALEM) - As we mourn the death of Sunday Timescorrespondent Marie Colvin, in Syria, we recall her dedicated work in Sri Lanka;

Marine Colvin - Sunday Times

where a government soldier threw a hand grenade that cost her an eye in 2001, while she reported on the front lines, covering the fighting between the Sri Lanka Army and LTTE rebels from the north.

Marie was targeted by soldiersafter identifying herself as a reporter. Resistance fighters with the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) Tamil Tigers, said it was an act of deliberate targeting and cowardice.

"After she held up her press credentials, they lobbed a grenade at her," Marie's mother Rosemary Colvin told the Oyster Bay Pilot.

"She was arrested and tied up for 10 hours without medical care before the US State Department could get her out." This deliberate attempt to kill a civilian reporter followed by ten hours without medical care, constitutes a foul crime of war.
