LTTE protests in London and Oslo

London Protest
Around 400 of dogged Tamils are continuing their protest at London's Parliament Square at this time for it's third day. Protesters are calling for London's help in establishing a ceasefire between Sri Lankan forces and LTTE terrorists.Police arrested seven people on Tuesday during the clashes between LTTE supporters and Police.

London LTTE protest starts on Mondy with around 3000 people forced the closure of nearby Westminster Bridge by staging a sit-in on Monday night. However Now only left around 400 people in London protest. The bridge is now open again.

Several hundred demonstrators stayed all night, blocking roads until police moved them in the early hours, and vowed to continue their protest. Two protesters jumped into the River Thames but were recovered by police boats and taken to hospital.

Leicester East MP Keith Vaz is expected to deliver a letter to Downing Street calling for the situation in Sri Lanka to be debated by the UN Security Council.

Scotland Yard said they had issued "repeated requests" that images representing the Tamil Tigers - a proscribed organisation in the UK - carried by members of the crowd be removed.

One arrest was made on suspicion of carrying a flag supporting a proscribed organisation, under the Terrorism Act 2000. The other six arrests were made for a range of public order offences.

Palitha Kohona, permanent secretary at the Sri Lankan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told the government could not stop the offensive until LTTE agreed to lay down arms.

"The government wants to preserve the civilians, we want the civilians out, but the only decent thing that the LTTE can do now ... is to let the civilians go," he said. "The solution we have offered is very simple. LTTE must lay down its weapons, and then there will be no need to fire at anybody any more."

Oslo, Norway Protest
In Oslo, several hundred Tamil protesters gathered outside the prime minister's office to demand help from Norway. Police blocked the entrance to the building. An aide to the prime minister met the protesters, Norway government sources said

At the right now there were only left 25 people protesting. at the beginning there were 3000 people. Most people go away after they realised that this is a protest organized by pro LTTE groups in London.
