This title is currently not available in your location, but many other great films are.


With disturbing and distressing descriptions and film of executions, atrocities and the shelling of civilians, the programme features devastating new video evidence of war crimes – some of the most horrific footage ever broadcast. Captured on mobile phones, both by Tamils under attack and government soldiers as war trophies, the disturbing footage shows: the extra-judicial executions of prisoners; the aftermath of targeted shelling of civilian camps and dead female Tamil fighters who appear to have been raped or sexually assaulted, abused and murdered.
