COLOMBO, Jan 3, 2016 (AFP): Up to 100,000 people still living in camps six years after the end of Sri Lanka’s ethnic war will be given land for homes within six months, President Maithripala Sirisena told AFP Sunday.
“It is an ambitious target, but I will see that all the internally displaced people are given land to build homes,” the president said in an interview. “I am setting up a mechanism to complete this process within six months.”
