Sri Lankans search for missing relatives

Many Tamils are searching for relatives who went missing since the end of the country's civil war.

    The Sri Lankan military has stopped hundreds of Tamils from travelling to the capital Colombo to protest.

    Many Sri Lankans are still seeking answers about their relatives who went missing in the war between the government and Tamil Tigers in 2009.
