Tamil protesters surround Cameron's car in Sri Lanka
Friday November 15, 2013 7:26 PM, IANS

Thousands of Tamil protesters surrounded British Prime Minister David Cameron's car Friday and tried to hand over pictures of their missing loved ones while he was on a visit to Sri Lanka's war-ravaged northern region, eyewitnesses said.

Cameron, who had come to Colombo to attend the Commonwealth summit being held Nov 15-17, flew to the northern city of Jaffna to meet the region's new Tamil first minister, former judge C.V. Vigneswaran of the Tamil National Alliance and people affected by the 25-year-long civil war.

Shortly after arriving in Jaffna, his convoy was mobbed by relatives of people who had disappeared during the civil war that ended in 2009.
