Tamil Newspapers : தமிழ் செய்தித்தாள்கள்

Gunmen attacked and torched the main Tamil newspaper office on Saturday in northern Sri Lanka. This is the latest attack on the country's private-owned media.

The newspaper's owner, Ishwarapatham Saravanapaban, told AFP on the telephone that at least one armed fire was set on fire in Jaina's office and the printing press last night.

Jaffna is located 400 kilometers (250 miles) north of the capital Colombo.

Although the printing press was destroyed, Sarvabhapan Pawan said there was no injury in the incident, "The workers escaped when gunmen attacked the printing press. At the time, they were preparing to distribute the news to the customers. The government or the paramilitary forces carried out this attack. Because without Jaffna, who else can carry firearms? "He said," After last week's attack on one of our offices in another place, we asked for police protection. "

The authorities did not immediately comment on this.

Saravanapaban, a lawmaker of the anti-Tamil National Alliance (TNA), said at least five newspaper workers were killed in the last eight years.

The US ambassador to Sri Lanka, Michael Sison, was attacked on Saturday after only five days to express concern over the media's independence.

Michael said that the victims of the previous attack on Uthan were not brought to justice.
