Tell the world:

Sri Lankas government has admitted to Al Jazeera that its military bombed an area held by separatist fighters and now crowded with trapped civilians. The admission follows the leak of satellite images taken by the UN which show signs of aerial bombing inside the no fire zone. The government insists that no civilians were in danger, that the bombing was targeted at Tamil fighters in the area and not civilians. Al Jazeera talks to Sri Lankas foreign secretary.
