The LTTE committed many serious war crimes during the Eelam wars. Here are some of them. To start with, there are prohibitions regarding recruitment into an army. The Optional Protocol on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict forbids the enlistment of anyone under the age of 18 into the armed forces. According to the UN, the LTTE recruited 6,905 children. They were forcibly taken away from their families and placed in the front line. A large number died in battle. Child soldiers rescued by the army refused to go back to their families. "They can't recognize their parents. Some don't even know their names," the army said. Written by

This is a film that pulls no punches. Watching these innocent people killed in the cover of "Killing the terrorists" is haunting and horrifying because it is based on events that actually happen. These people trying to stay alive from day to day is a sobering viewing experience. Glad that CH4 was able to bring this atrocities committed by this cowardly regime to light. Hope these voiceless people will get justice someday.
Some of the young men and women were blind folded, hands tied and then executed. These are inhuman instincts.People are killed anywhere and everywhere without respite and their corpses abandoned without proper burial or funeral. Singala army's motto when it comes to human life - "Kill'em all"
