Aid workers saddened by killings

CARA/ HAS EXPRESSED AS sympathy to the French charity Action Against Hunger after 17 of the charity's workers were murdered in Muttur in north-eastern Sri Lanka.

Pauline Taylor-McKeown, Cafod's tsunami regional manager, said Cafod was "deeply saddened" by the news. She added: "At a time when the world's eyes are focused on the Middle East, we cannot allow such appalling events in Sri Lanka to go unnoticed.

"CAFOD is extremely concerned that violence has escalated to the point where humanitarian workers are now being targeted. The situation appears to be spiralling rapidly," she said. Action Against Hunger was helping to rebuild the area around Muttur in the wake of the tsunami in December 2004, but has now suspended its operations due to the growing violence between Sri Lanka's army and the Tamil Tiger rebels.
