    It has been a year since Mahinda Rajapaksa, the Sri Lankan president, returned to power after defeating his one-time military general in a presidential vote.

    The Tamil Tiger rebels had just been defeated and Rajapaksa promised reconciliation between the country's Sinhalese majority and Tamil minority.

    But as Al Jazeera's Prerna Suri reports, one year on, many Tamils are still looking for relatives that disappeared during the final days of the civil war.
