Sri Lanka civil war: Victim's father vows to fight for justice

The father of a boy who was executed during the civil war wants to seek justice from the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands.

    It has been 10 years since the end of Sri Lanka's devastating civil war.

    Around 100,000 civilians and fighters from both sides were killed. Among them, a group of Tamil students was allegedly executed on a beach.

    The case of the 'Trinco five' is one of the most widely known of the war, and is still being heard in court.

    A father of one of the victims is vowing to continue the fight for justice.
