A Tamil woman holds a malnourished child at a makeshift hospital inside the war zone in Putumattalan, Sri Lanka. The photo was taken earlier this month. Image from Bigpicture. 

It should be borne in mind that civilians like these are being used as human shields by the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) against the advancing Sri Lankan army forces. The LTTE, a terrorist organization bent on carving a Tamil state inside Sri Lanka was one of the first organizations to systematically use suicide bombings in terrorizing people. I still vividly remember the loss after Rajiv Gandhi was blown up by Thenmozhi Rajaratnam, a female terrorist of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.
