Stench of dead bodies permeate Vanni, wounded allowed to die without treatment
An uncounted number of dead bodies between 2,000 and 3,000 are lying all over the places in civilian congested area and the civilians are all struck by a heavy stench of dead bodies, said a volunteer doctor from Mu'l'li-vaaykkaal. "Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has destroyed all medical facilities by targeted attacks, and the SLA was continuing inhuman and indiscriminate attacks on civilians providing only two options, death or surrender," he added. The volunteer doctor himself witnessed more than 100 deaths Saturday morning. All the government doctors and the top officials have fled the shelling. Civilians are in shock at the continuing carnage in Vanni.
"We need a pause from continued cannon and mortar fire to treat the wounded. There is a serious need for external medical crew to take care of the seriously wounded, who are allowed to die without medical attention," the volunteer doctor told TamilNet over a satellite phone.
