Sri Lanka to count civil war dead

November 28, 2013

Sri Lanka is plannng to do a census of the number of eople killed in the civil war with the LTTE.

A gocervment statement says:

“will conduct an island-wide census to assess the human and property damages occurred during nearly three-decade long conflict,”

It is expected to take 16,000 officials to visit the homes of families affected by the war.

Editorial Comment:

This census is well and truly overdue.  Much of the misinformation and wild claims about 40,000 civilians killed have gained attention due to the lack any actual evidence.

If run correctly it would give a much better insight into how and why the civil war came to an end.
