UN condemns attacks in Sri Lanka

The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has strongly condemned the indiscriminate attacks by LTTE in the south eastern of Sri Lanka, which left over dozens dead and injured.

"These latest deadly attacks coincide with the expiration today of the ceasefire agreement. The Secretary-General reiterates his firm belief that the only way to stop further violence in Sri Lanka is through dialog," UNSG spokesperson said in an statement.

He urges the parties concerned to undertake genuine efforts to achieve a peaceful negotiated solution, the statement added.
