[b]Peace Monitors question whether there is a Ceasefire Agreement in Sri Lanka[/b]

Colombo, 14 January, (Asiantribune.com): Questioning whether the Ceasefire Agreement is over, the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) has issued a blunt warning that there is a risk of going to back to war if the situation that is getting worse is not arrested by both parties.

Condemning the latest attack on Sri Lanka Navy soldiers in Cheddikulam on 12, January 2006 the SLMM states that the Ceasefire Agreement will be over if such attacks or retaliation continues.

SLMM also dismisses the LTTE explanation that it is "the People" who are behind the attacks.

"SLMM finds this explanation unacceptable. It is safe to say that LTTE involvement cannot be ruled out and we find the LTTE’s indifference to these attacks worrying," says the press release issued by S LMM.
