Displaced Tamil civilians watch, as Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa (not seen) arrives at the Manik Farm refugee camp, on the outskirts of the northern Sri Lankan town of Vavuniya, December 9, 2009. Most Sri Lankan refugees resettled from large military-run camps since the end of a 25-year civil war in May are still in transit facilities while de-mining work is finished, the government said on Friday. Human Rights and Disaster Management Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe said 70 percent of the more than 280,000 refugees who fled the end of the war against the Tamil Tigers had been relocated from the main camps.
