Sri Lanka to mark end of civil war

Military prepares victory parade for the fifth anniversary to mark end of war between government and Tamil Tigers.

    Sri Lanka will mark five years since the end of the civil war on Sunday.

    The government has banned public commemorations for Tamil Tiger rebels, the group it fought for nearly three decades until the end of the war.

    As the military prepares a victory parade to mark its triumph over the group, survivors say their suffering is far from over.
