LTTE killed Tamil civilians: surrendered Tiger leaders

Two top LTTE leaders, who gave themselves up before the Sri Lankan Army, have said the Tamil Tigers used the civilians as "hostages" never allowing them to flee the war zone and resorted to "mass killings" if they failed to heed.

Velayutham Dayanithi alias Daya Master, former media coordinator of LTTE, and George, official interpreter of top leader, also appealed to the remaining Tamil Tigers to renounce violence and join the mainstream.

"The LTTE is still using innocent civilians as hostages. They don't let them go out of the areas controlled by them.'Viduthalai Puligal'(LTTE cadres) have killed a number of people in Sudanthirapuram area when they tried to flee from them," Daya Master, who surrendered to the Army last week, told the Sri Lankan state television.

"More than 200 people lost their lives at the hands of LTTE in that one area," he said.
