A photo story about the many refugees in Sri Lanka caused by the civil war between the tamil tigers and the government.

Currently there are approximately 750.000 refugees in Sri Lanka.
Over the last 18 months 300.000 refugees have been displaced as a result of fighting between the Tamil tigers and the Sri Lankan army.

The civil war between the Tamil tigers and the government of Sri Lanka which started in 1983 has cost almost 70.000 lives.
Still there is no solution for the conflict and the cease fire agreement of 2002
has been violated by both parties resulting in renewed fighting.
Over the past 18 months more than 5000 people has lost their lives.
