Sri Lanka conflict - footage of wounded

Video: Sri Lanka’s ‘bloodbath’


  The human toll of Sri Lankan conflict rises  

The United Nations says a “bloodbath” is taking place in northern Sri Lanka, as government troops launch attacks on Tamil Tiger separatists.

One medic in the war zone has reported that 370 bodies were delivered to his hospital over the weekend.

Each side accuses the other of inflicting the casualties – claims that are impossible to verify.
