channel4-01 The brief truce is over, as Sri Lankan forces resume their offensive against Tamil Tiger rebels, with civilians still caught in the middle.


Channel 4 News has obtained footage from inside the "safe" zone which shows what is said to be the aftermath of an artillery attack on people queuing for milk and food.

After months of heavy fighting, government troops are now surrounding the rebels in a tiny strip of north eastern Sri Lanka, inside a specially designated zone where thousands of civilians are sheltering.
Tamil Tiger reports claim scores of people were killed and injured in the strike eight days ago, many of them children.

Some of the images in this report are distressing.
