Sri Lanka begins resettling war displaced

AFP reports that the government of Sri Lanka has begun the resettlement process for the displaced.

Sri Lanka on Wednesday allowed 1,100 people displaced during the recently-ended ethnic conflict with the Tamil Tigers to return home, in the first phrase of an ambitious relocation plan.
The state run publication, the Ceylon Daily News, reports that 4500 of the displaced will be returned to their former villages shortly.
