In this open letter Amnesty International calls on the Indian Foreign Secretary to raise, with his Sri Lankan counterparts, concerns about the safety of civilians trapped in the Wanni, as government forces close in on Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) bases in the north-eastern part of the island. The organization also asks that he discuss the general deterioration of human rights in the country, even in areas not directly affected by the conflict.
