1,034 children among the above are orphans or separated from their parents while there are 7,894 widows and 3,100 pregnant mothers in Vavuniyaa internment camps.
There are 11,873 detainees injured in the war and 3,968 maimed persons held in the above camps.

Sri Lanka is violating every basic human rights again! Children don't belong in a internment camp!
I have seen these pictures before from WW2 where jews were held in the same concentrationcamps that the sinhalese have set up (with U.N. money!). Many of these children never have had any safety from the sri lankan government, instead they were attacked by rajapaksa and fonseka, whose armies also used clusterbombs and chemical warfare, on a daily base in the mullaithivu killing fields! Thousands tamil babies and children were slaughtered by sri lankan airforce and many have lost life or limb!
In the mean time the government is partying over 50.000 killed tamils in their so called "war on terror" which is basicly a cover up for genocide! Rajapaksa and his brothers are warcriminals and the U.N. must demand probes into this!
My support goes to all the tamils in Sri Lanka who have no voice, your brothers and sisiters here must help you to get you a safe and free Tamil Eelam!
