    Saturday marks 10 years since Sri Lanka's long civil war ended.

    Tamil Tiger rebels made their last stand against the government on a narrow strip of coastline - with 300,000 civilians sheltering from the final battles.

    Both sides have since faced allegations of war crimes and rights abuses.

    Al Jazeera's Minelle Fernandez reports from Kilinochchi.
