Clinton says Sri Lanka is causing "untold suffering"

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sri Lanka has caused “untold suffering” as it fights Tamil Tiger rebels in what is believed to be the endgame of Asia’s longest-running war, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday.

“I think that the Sri Lankan government knows that the entire world is very disappointed that in its efforts to end what it sees as 25 years of conflict, it is causing such untold suffering,” Clinton told lawmakers, referring to the thousands of civilians trapped in the war zone.
