Tamil Protest in Stockholm
A few hundred Tamils resident in Sweden carried out a sit- in demonstration in central Stockholm on Thursday.
The protest caused some traffic disturbance but was otherwise carried out peacefully.
The demonstration was a protest against the situation in Sri Lanka and an appeal to the Swedish government to react.
In Norway several protests took place on Wednesday, including a hunger strike by 20 Tamil nationals, with the aim to urge the Norwegian government to demand an immediate ceasefire in Sri Lanka.
