Genocide by LTTE

Since 1975, the LTTE Tigers have been mercilessly murdering their countrymen.

* On 27 July 75, Jaffna Mayor Alfred Duriappah was assassinated in a HINDU Temple because he had become an obstacle to the Tigers' craving for power.

* 17 April 87 - LTTE leader PULENDRAN led a brutal massacre of 127 bus travellers, including pregnant women and children, at Kithulutuwa, Trincomalee.

* 7 July 87 - LTTE Tigers murdered in cold blood, 34 Buddhist Monks at ARANTALAWA. The CHIEF PRIEST was hacked to death while he pleaded for the lives of the other monks.

* The Tigers murdered AMIRTHALINGAM, SRI SABARATNAM, UMA MAHESWERAN and PADMANABAH - all leaders of other TAMIL groups.

* 3 August 90- Tigers massacred 140 Tamil speaking MUSLIMS, including children, while they prayed in their Mosques, in Batticaloa.
