On Air Today: The end of civil war in Sri Lanka?

After decades of violence, could this finally be the bitter end  of the civil war in Sri Lanka?

The Tamil Tigers are facing defeat by the Sri Lankan Army. The United Nations has called on them to surrender and Hillary Clinton says “the entire world” is disappointed the Sri Lankan government isn’t protecting civilians.

According to one aid organisation hundreds of dead and wounded people have been brought out of frontline areas.
There’s been protests in London calling for an end to war and Prameshwaran Sabramaniyum, whose family were killed during recent fighting is on hungerstrike.

Ros will be joining him and the Tamil protesters outside parliament in London for WHYS today. Post your comments and questions now.
