Civilians flee Lankan war zone


April 23, 2009
In this photograph released by the Sri Lankan navy on April 22, members of the military hand out food to the people who have fled the 'No Fire Zone' controlled by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, in northern Sri Lanka.

Thousands of civilians surged out of Sri Lanka's war zone on Thursday, while soldiers and Tamil Tiger rebels fought the apparent endgame of Asia's longest-running war, ignoring international calls to protect those still trapped.
