Asia- Sri Lanka- Government takes key Tamil Rebel Position by force

(Social Justice South Africa ; c.f. Reuters (Secular) 15/11/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Reuters is reporting that the Sri Lanka army has taken the key rebel stronghold of Pooneryn. The stronghold has held out for over a decade, as the army finally advances further against the rebels. There seems to be no clear stance of the Catholic church on the Tigers- terrorism is openly condemned, and Catholic Archbishop Oswald Gomis, earlier- in February this year told of fears (reported by Vatican Radio 25/02/2008) of the "Tigers" targeting tourists. Other than this, sources of views we have read from the church, or news sources reporting with or on her seem neutral on the issue- simply reporting news.
