Disabled soldiers attend a military ceremony to lay the foundation stone for a 10 million dollar hospice for quadriplegics in Anuradhapura today. Army chief Jagath Jayasuriya said the hospice will also include residential facilities for visiting family members. Nearly 30,000 government troops were injured and 6,200 killed during the last three years of Sri Lanka's 37-year war with the separatist Tamil Tigers that ended last May. Among of those injured, many lost limbs, eyes or their hearing, and more than 300 troops were left with severe paralysis. AFP
