Thousands leave Sri Lankan camp - Breaking news
Well today we have some very good news about those so called consentration camps in Sri Lanka. Yes they have started to release the prisoners. None I may add have numbers stamped on their arms and the realesed pictures show them casually strolling down a road on the way home.
Nearly 6,000 Tamil refugees have been released from Sri Lanka's main camp for war-displaced people, officials say.
The 5,700 refugees who left Menik Farm on Thursday are among almost 40,000 people due to be resettled over the next few weeks, the government says.
This would be the largest single batch freed since the Tamil Tigers were defeated in May. Some 250,000 civilians are housed in military-run camps.
The authorities have been criticised for the slow pace of resettlement.
