Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka Subject of Channel 4 Documentary

Channel 4's Jonathan Miller discusses upcoming hour-long documentary.

Sri Lanka Genocide meeting at UN

(LONDON) - As we reported this week, footage of Tamil Tigers being Murdered with their hands tied behind their backs by Sri Lankan government soldiers is authentic, according to statements released by the United Nations.

A special investigation by Channel 4 featuring devastating new evidence of alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka is screened at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, as pressure mounts for action.

The documentary is an hour-long investigation into the final weeks of the bloody Sri Lankan civil war and features damning new evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Titled Sri Lanka's Killing Fields, Jon Snow presents the investigation which was shown to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Friday.

Disturbing footage in the film includes the apparent extra-judicial massacre of prisoners by government forces, the aftermath of targeted shelling of civilian hospitals and the bodies of female Tamil fighters who appear to have been sexually assaulted.

Also examined in the film are atrocities carried out by the Tamil Tigers, including the use of human shields, and footage depicting the aftermath of a suicide bombing in a government centre for the displaced.

The UN screening was attended by a number of ambassadors from nations including the US and UK.
