Sri Lanka refugees living in limbo

Wayne Hay; 26/1/10

As Sri Lanka prepares for its first presidential election since the end of the civil war, around 100,000 ethnic Tamils are still being held in refugee camps in the north of the country. The incumbent president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, is expected to face a strong challenge from the retired army general, Sarath Fonseka. One of the big election issues has been the treatment of the minority Tamils, after thousands died in the final stages of the war. Wayne Hay was granted a rare opportunity to travel to the former battleground, to see how the Tamils are coping in peace time.
