    COLOMBO: Nearly 8,000 people were killed in the final phase of Sri Lanka's war against Tamil Tigers in 2009, according to government figure released today.

    The casualty statistics by Lanka's Census Department for the first time in a war says that 11,172 people were killed in 2009 at the height of the country's civil war, a figure in stark contrast to estimates by international rights groups.
    Of these 7,934 deaths were described due to "extra- ordinary" circumstances, while 2,523 were natural deaths.

    The report does not indicate the number of Tamil Tiger combatants killed during the last days of civil war.

    It says that between 2005 and 2009 some 22,329 people had died in the country's north.

    The military campaign against the LTTE began in mid 2006 and ended in May three years later. Some 4,156 people remain untraceable during the time of the military conflict.

    The report, however, has not separated the number of civilians from the number of LTTE fighters who were killed during the military campaign.

    Sri Lanka has always argued that true figures of casualties from the military conflict were much lower than the figures cited by international agencies.

    A UN Secretary General panel report last April alleged some 40,000 civilians had been killed.

    The former war theatre in the north has a population of under a million, according to the report.

    The census department said the total population in the northern province stood at 997,754 in July last year.

    It said the June/July enumeration was the first since 1981 when the province became a hotbed of violence with LTTE launching its armed campaign for separatism.

    Kilinochchi and Mullaithivu districts which were the epicentres of LTTE campaign together have a population of over 170,000, while the Jaffna district population stood at 567,229, the figures released have shown.

    This is a genocide by govt forces on tamilians.. They must accept responsible.... Expecting response of indian govt on this.... Even US is actively pursuing the matter better than indians... Congress is playing double games here.... And now Mahinda rajapakse is backtracking on his promise to change the constitution to provide equal right as per 13th amendment!!

    I am a North Indian but I have read whole history of Sri Lanka and it was mistakes by Sri Lanka majority Sinhala that led their country to the verge of civil war. Like first making Sinhalese the sole official language, taking away citizenship of lots of Tamil and measures to even ban Tamil movies from India etc. It always seems whatever Sinhala do they don't care what Tamil minority in their country think about that.

    But I must concede Sri Lanka took some measures like giving official status to Tamil Language and mending many mistakes done by them in past but still insufficient. Sri Lanka still need de-centalisation to do long lasting peace in their country, if they continued pressing for more unitary policies then they will suffer more in future.

    Even malaysia and singapore have given official status to indians who moved there in the past 100 years... But SL refuses to give them the same rights even after 1000 years...

    China backing you more than 30years. Even the very few tamils in Lanka wont afraid about china's backing and fought fiercely (for you it took 30years to finish the civil war).... But in India we are in the number of crores.. Go and show their backing somewhere else, Not to us...

    Yes, that was a move in 50s to increase Sinhala dominance in politics. Indian citizenship law says whoever was living in Indian territory before 1950 is Indian citizen but Sri Lanka went to truncate dominance of Tamils and that led their country towards uncertainty. And still it seems Sri Lanka never learnt from their past.

    Is there any Indian Naval Base(s) in TN ? if not they better build one... It would help the timely capture of the shooters before they escape from the region and prosecute them before the law.
