The United Nations has expressed concern over violence in Sri Lanka as the toll continues to rise, with a doctor working in the country’s so-called safe zone saying at least 47 people died on Tuesday when his hospital was attacked.

Tamil Tiger fighters blame the government but the army denied the claim.

Al Jazeera’s John Terrett reports on the UN’s growing concerns for those trapped between the two sides.
