LTTE Tamil Terrorists Attacks on Civilians

The below list is just a handful of examples of killings committed upon innocent civilians by the LTTE. In 3 decades close to 300 attacks took place and the only response Sri Lanka received from the International Community was a sympathy statement and the insistence on returning to talking with the LTTE. This was so because those funding the LTTE were living on foreign shores, holding foreign passports and having close links to foreign politicians and associated with foreign organizations by virtue of registering themselves as international charities and human rights advocates while back in Sri Lanka orders were given to blow people up, assassinate leaders and cause mayhem. Every day was a war scenario in Sri Lanka for 30 years and only after May 2009 the people are living without fear.
