David Cameron has travelled to the Tamil-dominated north of Sri Lanka – the first international leader to do so since Sri Lankan independence in 1948 – before holding face-to-face talks with the country’s president.
At one point, the PM’s convoy was surrounded by more than 200 protesters holding pictures of loved ones who they claim were killed by the Sri Lankan armed forces or have disappeared.
Mr Cameron said the visit – in which he also toured a temporary refugee camp and newspaper office whose printing presses have been burnt – had “drawn attention to the plight” of the Tamil minority in the country.
The Tamils’ treatment at the end of the civil war in 2009 has dominated the run-up to the the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (Chogm), taking place in the capital Colombo.
