Sembrar per no collir

Es lamentable que els esforços de la comunitat internacional es malmetin. Com a l'estat espanyol, el govern "oficial" es sord a la voluntat de part del poble administrat.

Excés d'asserssors i conultors de casa bona i nul enteniment.


Attack at main Sri Lanka airport

A military base adjoining Sri Lanka's only international airport has come under attack from suspected Tamil Tiger rebels, government officials say.

Passengers already on aircraft were disembarked and led to a shelter, while others trying to reach the airport were turned away and approach roads closed.

The airport was attacked in 2001 by Tiger rebels who killed 18 people and destroyed civilian and military jets.

Colombo airport is the country's only international passenger airport and it adjoins a military base, which houses some of the aircraft used in recent air strikes against Tiger rebel bases in the north of the country.

Sri Lanka has been sliding back into civil war for months, our correspondent says, and although a ceasefire does exist it is only on paper and both sides have been ignoring it for months.

The island is heavily reliant on the money which tourism brings in, so an assault on the airport could be very bad news for Sri Lanka's economy.

In the 2001 attack on Colombo airport, which involved suicide bombers, half of the country's national airline fleet was destroyed.
