Sri Lanka rejects veracity of pictures of bloodstained bodies of bound and blindfolded Tamils

The BBC reports that Sri Lanka’s foreign minister has cast doubt on newly released photos that are said to show a massacre of Tamils during the country’s civil war. On an official UK visit, GL Peiris said images published by the Global Tamil Forum were a bid by rebel sympathisers to tarnish Sri Lanka’s image. Some of the pictures apparently show the bloodstained bodies of bound and blindfolded young people. The Global Tamil Forum (GTF), a group which includes former supporters of the separatist insurgents, released the images as the Sri Lankan foreign minister visited London.
