No... Peace Be With You!

At least 45 civilians have been killed in eastern Sri Lanka after army shells hit a camp for people displaced by the fighting, Tamil Tiger rebels say. "It seems a school where some internally-displaced people were residing has been hit in the attack," an SLMM spokesperson said.

"We can confirm lots of people are dead," the spokesperson said. "The numbers are unclear, but initial reports show 50 to 60 people have been killed. The injured could number several hundred." Tamil Tiger rebels say the number of deaths could be as high as 100.

And the band played on.
