    This kind of incidents have taken place many times in the past (during war period). Those who have lost their brothers, husbands know and most of cases prosecuted in military court.

    Have to be careful when you deal with armed personals, a silly incident can take a life of another because we should not forget that not all soldiers have the same education level or see the value of life.

    It won't be a war crime as dead people are sinhalese. If they were Tamil all the NGOs and Human Rights groups will shout
