Sri Lankan army to share war expertise with 54 nations

Last Updated: Thursday, January 27, 2011 - 01:04

Sri Lanka`s army on Wednesday said it will
share its war experience in crushing Tamil Tiger rebels with
at least 54 nations during a three-day forum in the capital
Colombo beginning from May 31.

The army`s no-holds-barred offensive overwhelmed the Tamil
Tigers who were at one time controlling one third of the
island`s territory and regarded one of the world`s most
ruthlessly efficient guerrilla outfits.



However, the military success was also marred by
allegations of war crimes.



The US has led international calls for an independent
investigation which Sri Lanka resists.
