    Very sad ending. Deepest sypathies to the families of the deceased. SL government should put restriction SL fishermen to fish only in Sri Lankan waters to avoid such future incidence.

    Mr Puran Appu we may declare war on Somalia, but sad to say the General to lead us in battle is in prison.

    The Sri Lankan High Commissioner to India suspected a 'third party' involvement when the Indians complained the Sri Lankan navy has killed their fisherman. Well here's proof for your 'third party' High Commissioner!

    Summon Indian Ambassador immediately and ask what it feels like to be pulled up for something without proof!

    if the South Korean and Malaysian commandos were able to catch these somali pirates, why can't we? we should teach these fellows a lesson.

    were they fishing for fish or gold in somalian waters, knowing about the pirates in that region ?

    I wonder whether there is a visible demarcation in the sea water that helps the poor fishermen to prevent straying into the water zones of other country?
