"The UK has renewed calls for the Sri Lankan government to investigate allegations that war crimes were committed at the end of the country’s 25-year civil war after a television documentary appeared to show fresh evidence of human rights abuses. Channel 4’s 'Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields' documentary, which aired in the UK on Tuesday night, revealed disturbing images apparently filmed on mobile phones and small cameras of civilian casualties, executions and evidence of sexual abuse carried out in the final months of the civil war."
