Tamil protestors hold banners in central Brussels during a demonstration to protest against Sri Lanka's military offensives in territories held by Tamil Tigers, March 16, 2009. The United Nations said on Monday Tamil Tiger rebels forcibly recruited another of its local workers in Sri Lanka's war zone along with three dependents of U.N. staff, including a 16-year-old girl. The UN said the forced conscriptions came at the weekend, when nearly 2,000 people fled Sri Lanka's shrinking war zone as troops fought towards the final showdown in a 25-year war with the separatist Tamil Tigers.

Since the beginning of the year, over 35,000 Tamils have fled to government-controlled areas following fighting and been placed in refugee camps. However, these refugees complain that they are not able to leave the camps, a temporary measure the government says will continue until they can weed out the rebels' infiltrators hiding among civilians.

Tamil Hindu priests carry a statue of their god around the temple during the celebration of the Thai Pongal festival in Colombo January 14, 2009. Pongal in Tamil means "boiling or spilling over." The boiling over of milk in a clay pot in the early morning denotes future prosperity for the family. Newly harvested rice, jaggery (unrefined sugar) and nuts are boiled with the milk and this is later served to people. REUTERS/Buddhika Weerasinghe (SRI LANKA)
