    Colombo - People in northeast Sri Lanka are increasing pressure on the government to return land seized by the military during the country's long-running civil war.

    At least 145 families have camped outside the Security Force headquarters in the Mullaitivu district, the scene of the last battle between government troops and Tamil Tiger fighters.

    The sit-in is the second of its kind in the former war zone in recent weeks.
