Britain expresses sympathy over terror attacks

The British Minister of State and Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs with special responsibility for Asia, Lord Malloch Brown told President Mahinda Rajapaksa at Dorchester Hotel in London that they "feel huge sympathy for President Rajapaksa, people of Sri Lanka and the victims of terrorist bombs in the island nation". "We wish that this type of violence would end soon," he said.

The State Minister discussed a range of bilateral issues and the need to continue high level engagement between the two countries.

The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) has been blamed for the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka. After two recent most terrorist attacks in civilian buses the United Nations Humanitarian Office (OCHA) said, the katubedde and Polgolla bus attacks blamed on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) are against all standards of international humanitarian law and all principles on which the United Nations is based.

"The targeting of non-combatants is a contravention of international humanitarian law, for which those responsible must be held accountable," OCHA's news service IRIN quoting a UN official said.
