A man cycles past St. James Church and a poster of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Jaffna
A man cycles past St. James Church and a poster of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa which reads "May you live a long life" in Jaffna June 6, 2014. For many minority Tamils here, the end of the almost three-decade-long conflict - with the crushing defeat of the separatist Tamil Tigers in May 2009 - has brought little peace, despite government efforts to smother the former rebel stronghold with visible economic development.
