Former Sri Lanka Tamil Tiger rebels 'disappear'

Three Sri Lankan Tamil Tiger rebels who took part in a rehabilitation ceremony last year may subsequently have been taken away by the authorities, a rights campaigner has said.

It has emerged that parents saw photos of their children at the ceremony attended by President Rajapaksa but now know nothing of their fate.

Since 2009 more than 11,000 people have been detained for varying periods.

The authorities say they were attached to the Tamil Tigers.

They are, or have been held, in what are called rehabilitation camps before rejoining their families at big, official ceremonies. Full story...
