The U.S. embassy issued a statement today condemning the attack on the studios of Siyatha Television and its affiliated radio stations and called for a credible inquiry to bring the perpetrators to justice. 

The statement read “This attack, together with the unsolved disappearance of Prageeth Eknaligoda and other acts of violence against the press, serves to intimidate journalists and to further imperil media freedoms in Sri Lanka.  We welcome the announcement of a police investigation since only a credible inquiry will bring the perpetrators to justice.” (Daily Mirror online)

    Sudath Saturday, 31 July 2010 08:13 AM

    Babanis Saturday, 31 July 2010 08:19 AM

    Thanks you sir, Mr. Obama.

    RIYADH Saturday, 31 July 2010 08:33 AM

    sinhaya Saturday, 31 July 2010 08:59 AM

    mata nikang hithuna Saturday, 31 July 2010 09:00 AM

    Who are those " unknown assailants " ? Are they really unknown, no! everybody knows who they are. Reasons known to us, we call them unknown assailants. Suba Anagathayak!!

    So now we see Siyatha is an American cats paw, not an independant unbiased media.

    ruwan Saturday, 31 July 2010 09:11 AM

    insurance for riots or attacks ? i dont think so ! there is no such cover in sri lanka i believe

    Babanis Saturday, 31 July 2010 09:14 AM

    They will have to start a fast in from of the US embassy.

    Ananda Herath Saturday, 31 July 2010 09:25 AM

    Obama obana ekamai wadey. No result.

    Bandara Sunday, 01 August 2010 03:04 AM

    But our people are scared to comment. They will be taken for inquary for sure if they say anything against this insident. Every one knows who is the culprit?

    mata nikang hithuna Saturday, 31 July 2010 09:25 AM

    Lasantha's killers unknown. Eknaligoda's abductors unknown. Poddala Jayantha's attackers unknown. Sirasa attackers unknown. Now Siyatha attackers unknown. Many attackers on different people and organizations went unknown. So, nobody knows who they are. But, when a comment made by a foreign embassy, then we ask them not to interfere with our internal problems. Ok its true, then someone come forward to tell who the attackers are.

    Geronimo Saturday, 31 July 2010 09:38 AM

    But they say that they were not under threat and therefore did not insure themselves.

    Hipo Saturday, 31 July 2010 10:43 AM

    Why are all our opposition parties silent. Why don't they condemn it?

    MaPer Saturday, 31 July 2010 11:24 AM

    Are there any "credible inquiries" in Sri Lanka? Nothing will come of any inquiry - not even a presidential inquiry.

    Jagath Saturday, 31 July 2010 11:26 AM

    People are well aware who is behind the attack

    Mahi Saturday, 31 July 2010 11:38 AM

    WE wants credible probe on IRAQ

    Sujee Peiris Saturday, 31 July 2010 12:00 PM

    US should mind its own business. We should solve our own problems!

    Geronimo Monday, 02 August 2010 02:04 AM

    Gota? Duminda? Take your pick!!!

    Podi Guru Saturday, 31 July 2010 12:57 PM

    It is quite obvious that the big local problems are not being solved--just see most of the preceding comments.

    renate Saturday, 31 July 2010 01:04 PM

    Exactly US should mind their own business and not poke their nose into other nations affairs. Who do they think they are? They are the terrorists

    Musthafa Saturday, 31 July 2010 01:21 PM

    We want the justice for Iraq and Afghan also-

    DON Saturday, 31 July 2010 02:43 PM

    Yet, another action of a well known US citizen ??

    KD Saturday, 31 July 2010 07:37 PM

    Please enlighten the public.

    KD Saturday, 31 July 2010 07:40 PM

    One in the Navy custody? I don't think so.

    Jane Saturday, 31 July 2010 08:01 PM

    weerwarnsa time for diet...

    bugger Saturday, 31 July 2010 07:51 AM

    Unknown assailants will remain unkown for the foreseeable future.
