[b]Colombo, 05 February, (Asiantribune.com):[/b] V. Anandasangaree, President of the Tamil United Liberation Front in a strongly worded condemnation, demanded from Velupillai Prabakaran, the reclusive leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to withdraw the allegation that clay-more attacks on the Sri Lanka Army was by the civilians and not by them. He castigated the LTTE leader and said clearly that Sri Lankan Tamils are not barbarians to be involved in such terrorist acts of attacking the armed forces by triggering claymore bombs as alleged by the Sri Lanka’s Tamil rebel outfit.

"I very strongly condemn the claim of one of the Leaders of the LTTE that the clay-more attack on the military was by the civilians and not by them."

In a statement released to the press, Anandasangaree, has severely reprimanded the leader of the LTTE and demanded the immediate withdrawal of the alleged statement. "I very strongly condemn the claim of one of the Leaders of the LTTE that the clay-more attack on the military was by the civilians and not by them. The LTTE Leader must withdraw this allegation, before the International Community forms the impression that we, the Sri Lankan Tamils are barbarians or savages."

"The Tamil people living all over the world, like any other race or group of people, are very proud of their culture and civilization and will not tolerate any body doing anything to damage or cause dishonor to their culture or civilization," he said
