Last call to surrender for the LTTE
Apr 21, 2009 01:55 PM

A 24-hour ultimatum was given to the LTTE to surrender. The army earlier broke the earthen fortification that was blocking the exit route. Many civilians have escaped through this route, according to a military source. The Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa stated that there are 35,000 people still in the military controlled area.

The defense spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said, “With the influx of people, we have given a final

warning to Prabhakaran and his terrorist group to surrender to the government forces within 24-hours from 12 noon. Thereafter will be a military course of action. That is the best option.”

With the earthen wall broken, more civilians are expected to escape. It is likely now that the Asia’s longest running civil war may come to an end.
